The first issue of the Journal of Work Health and Safety Regulation is now available for viewing and downloading on J-Stage https://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/browse/jaohlev/-char/en
A paper version of the journal is also available. For further information, please contact the Editorial Office: email@example.com
The aim of the journal is to advance research and to inform policy debate and decision-making in all aspects of work health and safety regulation, including prevention, compensation, and rehabilitation/return to work. Further information on the journal is available at https://www.jaohl.jp/english/journal-guide/
We plan to produce two issues of the journal each year. The second issue of the journal will be published in mid-2023. It will be a general issue, for which the journal welcomes articles on any aspect of work health and safety regulation. Submissions for the second issue should be made as soon as possible.
The third issue will be published at the end of 2023 – it will be a special issue on work health and safety regulation and psychosocial hazards, and new submissions are most welcome. Submissions should be made by the end of August 2023.
The Journal is interested in submissions that include analysis of legislative, administrative, or judicial developments in a single country that have transnational implications or that relate to potential international trends; doctrinal (legal analytical) comparisons addressing common occupational health and safety issues across two or more countries; empirical analyses; case studies; analysis of theoretical, methodological or historical issues in comparative occupational health and safety law and policy; scholarship on mixed systems of law or of supranational legal regulation; and discussion of economic, social, or cultural aspects of occupational health and safety law and policy and/or the ‘transferability’ of legal rules or policy approaches.
Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives on occupational health and safety law – including from occupational health, medicine, sociology, regulatory studies, industrial relations, psychology, social policy, criminology, socio-legal studies and history – are welcome.
The journal is also interested in submissions that analyse important court decisions (case notes), reports on occupational health and safety law and policy issues (reports) and developments in occupational health and safety legislation (legislation notes), as well as reviews of books on occupational health and safety law and policy (book reviews). The journal will also publish occasional editorials (including guest editorials) reporting on developments in occupational health and safety law and policy from around the world.
We would be most grateful if you could please circulate to your networks information about the new journal, its availability in paper and digital formats, and the proposed special issue on psychosocial hazards.
