The Journal publishes scholarly articles on all areas of crime and criminal justice: from policing to sentencing, community penalties and prisons; from crime prevention to victims of crime; and from the social impact of crime prevention technologies to the study of social harms.
It is now Indexed in the Social Science Citation Index Expanded® (Five Year Impact Factor: 3.042).
