About Salus Journal
Salus Journal is published by the Faculty of Arts, Charles Sturt University. The journal's aim is to provide a platform and sounding board for critiquing the multi-dimensional aspects of law enforcement, security and emergency services. The journal is open to receive contributions from practitioners as well as researchers. Founded by the Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security at Charles Sturt University, the ethos of Salus Journal aligns with the motto "For the Public Good."
Salus Journal is a peer reviewed open access e-journal established to encourage an interdisciplinary forum for practitioners and researchers in law enforcement, security and the emergency services, as well as related professions - for example, those involved in disaster preparedness and response, police and fire services, volunteer emergency service organisations and those centred on national security, intelligence, counterterrorism and public safety.
Salus is the Roman goddess of "safety and welfare" ("Salus." Encyclopædia Britannica. Encyclopædia Britannica Online Academic Edition. Encyclopædia Britannica Inc., 2013. Web. 11 April, 2013.
“Safety and welfare” sums up what the Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security (AGSPS) teaches in its courses and is the ethos of the school generally. It could also be argued that police, security and emergency management education is all about safety and welfare. Safety and welfare also accords with the motto of Charles Sturt University: For the Public Good. Thus, it seemed entirely appropriate that we named the journal after this little known Roman goddess. The journal is open access so that anyone may benefit from the wisdom of the journal’s authors.
