Call for Papers


The Journal of Political Criminology (JnlPolCrim), a biannual, open-access, journal publishing peer-reviewed articles that address the relationship between crime and politics, aims to support the development and promotion of fresh perspectives on controversial topics in the study of crime, security and justice, alongside the identification of new areas for research and opportunities for practical engagement with policy implementation.

In support of these aims, the editors issue a call for articles of between 5,000-7,000 words (excluding references) for inclusion in the journal. These may address any area of crime and criminal justice policy, though the editors are particularly keen to receive research papers that offer fresh analyses of public perceptions of the criminal justice system, the policing of extremism, and the challenges posed to the criminal justice system by the recession.

The next closing date for submissions is January 31st 2016.
