PARTIAL LIST OF CRIMINOLOGY/CRIMINAL JUSTICE RELATED JOURNALS

(Contact webmaster@asc41.com to update and/or correct listings.)

The following is a list of journals that deal with criminology and criminal justice related topics. This is in no way to be considered an endorsed or approved list. It is merely an alphabetized list of publications dealing with crime and justice issues.

It should be noted at the outset, even stressed, that there are no official rankings of journals in this field. A number of researchers have attempted to address this and related subjects in a systematic fashion. Those interested in this matter are advised to read these works and draw their own conclusions. See, for example:

Clear, T. R. (2001) "Has Academic Criminal Justice Come of Age?" Justice Quarterly, 18:713.

Sorensen, J. and R. Pilgrim (2002) "The Institutional Affiliations of Authors in Leading Criminology and Criminal Justice Journals," Journal of Criminal Justice, 30:11-18.

Sorensen, J., C. Snell, and J. J. Rodriguez (2006) "An Assessment of Criminal Justice and Criminology Journal Prestige," Journal of Criminal Justice Education, 17:297-322.

For a complete annotated list of journals in the field (including orientation and mission, general philosophy, editorial focus and policy, and complete contact information) see, Michael S. Vaughn, et al, "Journals in Criminal Justice and Criminology:  An Updated and Expanded Guide for Authors," Journal of Criminal Justice Education, Vol 15 (1), Spring 2004, pp. 61 - 192.
