Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to our FAQ list where you can find answers to the most commonly asked questions about the British Society of Criminology.
- How do I notify the BSC of a change of address? Email your new details to firstname.lastname@example.org
- How do I apply to the BSC Innovation Fund? Members of the BSC are eligible to apply to the Innovation fund. See the members’ area for more details.
- Can the BSC offer legal or career advice to its members? The BSC does not offer legal or career advice to its members. We do have a Statement of Ethics for Researchers because the BSC as a professional body recognises the importance of continuing the discussion around issues such as ‘research integrity’ and ‘research misconduct’ within the discipline and wider afield.
- What resources can I access on the BSC website? If you are not a member you may access all parts of the website except the members-only area. Our Regional Groups page has a link to current events and archived details of previous BSC supported events. You might also want to look through the Publications section (particularly the Papers from the British Criminology Conference which has articles taken from some of our past conferences).
- How much does it cost to advertise an event or a job? Adverts for free events and studentships are placed free of charge. Members can place job adverts for free. All other adverts are charged at a rate of £130 for placement in the bulletin and website. The advert should be provided as a word document and a logo can be added for free. Contact email@example.com
- Do you provide volunteer or intern opportunities? No, as a small organisation we do not have the capacity to offer this.
- Can you provide expert comment to journalists? Wherever possible the BSC will assist with media enquiries but it is rarely possible to give a same-day response.
