The Journal of Criminology is an international peer-reviewed journal in the field of criminology. Originally published under the title of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology, it expressly seeks to publish innovative theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented research from around the world, as well as maintaining a strong commitment to high quality research in the Australasian region. Our editorial board represents the diversity of the field and the Journal’s aim to publish manuscripts that advance the field of criminology. See the journal’s aims and scope here.

The Journal of Criminology publishes four issues a year and welcomes submissions that focus on crime and society. It is particularly interested in submissions falling within the following categories:

  • Conceptually-oriented articles, especially on new and emerging themes, that deal with, or relate to, the areas of criminology and criminal justice;
  • Policy-focused articles proposing fresh thinking and new ideas in response to new and emerging, as well as established, policy challenges in these areas;
  • Empirical articles that break new ground on criminological topics and which use new or innovative methodologies.

The Journal of Criminology is open to Special Issues that focus on pressing topics in criminology, with guest editors who are experts in the field. We are particularly interested in special issues dedicated to First Nations’ and minoritised communities’ scholarship, managed by a guest editor with a First Nations’ and/or minoritised community background. The Journal will put out a call for special issue proposals, with specific guidelines each year. Please see the Special Issues guidelines for more information. NOTE: The 2023 call for EOIs has now closed. Stay tuned for new guidelines and a new call in 2024.
