The British Journal of Criminology (BJC) is one of the world's top criminology journals. It publishes work of the highest quality from around the world and across all areas of criminology.
We publish the BJC in partnership with an independent academic editorial board and Oxford University Press.
Among the free-to-access content in recent BJC editions is:
- Policing in Cool and Hot Climates: an analysis of how the amalgamation of Scotland's eight regional forces into a national force – Police Scotland – has given rise to unpredented political, public and media scrutiny.
- ‘Once they pass you, They may be gone forever’: an assessment of how well the UK Border Force balances its responsibilities as humanitarian first responders with its increasingly militarised status as protectors of national sovereignty and security.
- Comparing Employment Trajectories before and after First Imprisonment: a study of differential employment prospects for prisoners and ex-prisoners across four Nordic countries.
- Can criminologists change the world?: an assessment of how criminological research might have a greater real world impact.
