The International Journal of Law, Crime and Justice is an international and fully peer reviewed journal which welcomes high quality, theoretically informed papers on a wide range of fields linked to criminological research and analysis. It invites submissions relating to:

  • Studies of crime and interpretations of forms and dimensions of criminality;
  • Analyses of criminological debates and contested theoretical frameworks of criminological analysis;
  • Research and analysis of criminal justice and penal policy and practices;
  • Research and analysis of policing policies and policing forms and practices.

We particularly welcome submissions relating to more recent and emerging areas of criminological enquiry including cyber-enabled crime, fraud-related crime, terrorism and hate crime.

Papers should be between 7,000-10,000 words in length, although shorter papers relating to policy analysis and debate will be considered. The peer review process and decision on publication will normally be completed within 90 days of receipt of submissions. The Editors also welcome proposals for Special Issues and Guest Editorships.
