Criminology at the Borders
Hosted by University of Portsmouth

Editor’s Note

In 2012 the British Society of Criminology Conference made a successful return to the University of Portsmouth. Held from 4th to 6th July the conference had the title “Criminology at the Borders”. At the conference Professor Jock Young was awarded the BSC Outstanding Achievement Award, presented to him by Professor Pat Carlen. Plenary presentations were provided by Katja Franko Aas, David Garland, Roger Hood and Sharon Shalev. Thanks are due to the team at Portsmouth for organising the event. In 2013 the conference is hosted by the University of Wolverhampton where ‘criminology’ as a subject will be put on trial. If you are planning to speak at Wolverhampton it would be great if you would also consider submitting your paper to this journal.

For this Volume of the journal we have maintained a rigorous review process. Ten papers were submitted and four have made the final selection. All submitted papers were reviewed by at least two academics.  We are pleased to include papers from Jane Jones with Jen Phipps, Larry Karson, Mohd Kassim Noor-Mohamed with Jayne Noor-Mohamed, and Jack Dees.

The production of this journal is only possible with the assistance of colleagues who give their time freely. Thanks are due to the Editorial Board and all other reviewers.
