European Journal of Criminology
Publisher: SAGE Publications
The European Journal of Criminology is a refereed journal published by SAGE
publications and the European Society of Criminology. Launched in January
2004 by the European Society of Criminology in partnership with Sage
Publications, the journal seeks to open channels of communication between
academics, researchers and policy makers across the wider Europe.
It provides a forum for research and scholarship on crime and criminal
justice institutions. The journal publishes high quality articles using
varied approaches, including discussion of theory, analysis of quantitative
data, comparative studies, systematic evaluation of interventions, and study
of institutions of political process.
The journal also covers analysis of policy, but not description of policy
developments. Priority is given to articles that are relevant to the wider
Europe (within and beyond the EU) although findings may be drawn from other
parts of the world. There is a particular emphasis on the use of evidence
generated by sound social science methods to evaluate criminological ideas
Each issue includes a 'Œcountry survy' to summarize essential facts about a
country's criminal justice system, review trends in crime and punishment,
and discuss major publications in recent years.
