2015 Wiley Prize for best papers in Child Abuse Review
Child Abuse Review is proud to announce the winners of the 2015 Wiley Best Paper Prizes. These awards have been introduced to recognise the high quality and impact of papers published in the journal.
Papers published in volumes 21-23 (2012-2014) of Child Abuse Review were eligible for selection. The awards have been judged by Co-Editors Dr Jane V. Appleton and Dr Peter Sidebotham on the basis of the quality of the writing, the evidence underpinning it, and its relevance to practitioners, as well as the degree to which the paper has been downloaded and cited by others. Each of the award winning papers met these criteria and are considered to have made a significant contribution to the journal and to the work of safeguarding children.
The winning papers are:
- First Prize: “Child abuse, child protection and disabled children: a review of recent research” by Kirsten Stalker and Katherine McArthur (University of Strathclyde), published in Volume 21 Issue 1 (2012)
- Second Prize: “Resistant parents and child protection: knowledge base, pointers for practice and implications for policy” by Vic Tuck (Warwickshire Safeguarding Children Board), published in Volume 22 Issue 1 (2013)
- Third Prize: “The need for accountability to, and support for, children of men on domestic violence perpetrator programmes” by Susan Alderson, Nicole Westmarland (both Durham University) and Liz Kelly (London Metropolitan University), published in Volume 22 Issue 3 (2013)
The awards have been well-received by the winning authors. Commenting on her award, first prize winner Kirsten Stalker said: "Katie McArthur and I were delighted to hear that we had won a 2015 Wiley Prize for best papers in Child Abuse Review... There has been a lot of interest in the topic of safeguarding disabled children recently. Hopefully this award will, in a small way, highlight the issue further."
Vic Tuck, whose paper offered new perspectives on working with resistant, hostile and non-compliant parents, commented: "I feel both pleased and humbled to have received this prize: it represents a great highlight of my professional career.”
