Asian Journal of Criminology

Publisher: Springer Netherlands

The Asian Journal of Criminology aims to advance the study of criminology
and criminal justice in Asia, to promote evidence-based public policy in
crime prevention, and to promote comparative studies about crime and
criminal justice.

The Journal provides a platform for criminologists, policymakers, and
practitioners and welcomes manuscripts relating to crime, crime prevention,
criminal law, medico-legal topics and the administration of criminal justice
in Asian countries.

The Journal especially encourages theoretical and methodological papers with
an emphasis on evidence-based, empirical research addressing crime in Asian
contexts. It seeks to publish research arising from a broad variety of
methodological traditions, including quantitative, qualitative, historical,
and comparative methods.

The Journal fosters a multi-disciplinary focus and welcomes manuscripts from
a variety of disciplines, including criminology, criminal justice, law,
sociology, political science, psychology, forensic science, social work,
urban studies, history, geography, and anthropology.
