This peer-reviewed journal builds on the mission of its predecessor by promoting understanding of the causes of crime; the methods used to prevent and control crime; the institutions, principles, and actors involved in the apprehension, prosecution, punishment, and reintegration of offenders; and the legal and political framework under which the justice system and its primary actors operate. Historical and contemporary perspectives are encouraged, as are diverse theoretical and methodological approaches.
CCJLS publishes theoretical and empirical research on criminology, criminal justice, and criminal law and society; practice-oriented papers (including those addressing teaching/pedagogical issues); essays and commentary on crime, law, and justice policy; replies and comments to articles previously published in CCJLS or WCR; book and film reviews; and scholarly article reviews.

CRITICAL CRIMINOLOGY: AN INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL Back to Top
Critical Criminology is the official journal of the Division of Critical
Criminology of the American Society of Criminology. The journal deals with
questions of social, political and economic justice. Critical Criminology
is for academics and researchers with an interest in anarchistic, cultural,
feminist, integrative, Marxist, peace-making, postmodernist and left-realist
criminology. The journal does not limit the scope of the inquiry to state
definitions of crime and welcomes work focusing on issues of social harm
and social justice, including those exploring the intersecting lines of
class, gender, race/ethnicity and heterosexism. The journal is of interest
for all persons with an interest in alternative methodologies and theories
in criminology, including chaos theory, non-linear analysis, and complex
systems science as it pertains to the study of crime and criminal justice.

DIVISION ON CORRECTIONS & SENTENCING, HANDBOOK ON CORRECTIONS & SENTENCING Back to Top
Call for Abstracts, DCS Handbook on Corrections and Sentencing, Volumes 1 and 2
ASC’s Division on Corrections & Sentencing is sponsoring the Handbook on Corrections and Sentencing, a series of volumes on seminal and topical issues that span the fields of sentencing and corrections. The Handbook is being published by Routledge Press. Each volume will include critical essays, reviews, and reports of original research to provide a comprehensive assessment of the current state of knowledge, contribute to public policy discussions, and identify future research directions. Each volume will be thematic and focused on a single topical issue that cross-cuts corrections and sentencing research. The contents will be eclectic in regard to disciplinary foci, theoretical frameworks and perspectives, and research methodologies. The Division is currently soliciting articles for the first two volumes in the series: Risk and Need Assessment: Theory and Practice and Punishment Decisions: Sites of Disparity.
We invite abstracts for Volume 1, Risk and Need Assessment: Theory and Practice being edited by Faye Taxman that will be published in late 2015. We have received abstracts from 15 excellent committed contributors but can use about 5 more. Although we will consider contributions in all topic areas, we are especially interested in contributions that focus on several specific topics: gender and/or cultural responsive instruments, criminal history versus criminal offenses, scoring of instruments, implications of using one instrument at all decision points, differences among risk instruments for individuals of various legal statuses, use of risk assessment tools at sentencing, use of risk assessment tools for prosecutorial decisions, or racial disparity. Please submit abstracts and inquiries to Faye S. Taxman at email@example.com by May 30, 2015. Completed papers will be expected by September for publication in late 2015.
We invite abstracts for Volume 2, Punishment Decisions: Sites of Disparity being edited by Jeffery Ulmer and Mindy Bradley. This volume will define disparity broadly to include the intersection of race/ethnicity, gender, age, citizenship/immigration status, and socioeconomic status. The volume will examine dimensions such as how the pretrial or guilty plea processes shape exposure to punishment, how different types of sentencing decisions and/or policy structures (sentencing guidelines, mandatory minimums, risk assessment tools) might shape and condition disparity, or how post-sentencing decisions involving probation and parole contribute to inequalities. We seek pieces that pull together what we know and what we don’t and, most of all, contributions that will plow new ground for future advances. We invite theoretical papers as well as quantitative and qualitative empirical inquiries that move the field forward. We desire papers that demonstrate new concepts and propositions, novel sources of quantitative or qualitative data, or cutting-edge analytical techniques. Please submit abstracts and inquiries to Jeffery Ulmer at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1, 2015. Authors whose abstracts meet the above described standards will be invited to submit a full manuscript for external review and possible inclusion in the Handbook. The volume will be published in late 2016.
EMPLOYMENT AND REINTEGRATION: DEFINING SUCCESS WHILE NAVIGATING EMPLOYMENT IN REENTRY
Back to Top
Employment for offenders released from prison and being supervised in community settings is a critical pathway towards reintegration that contributes to desistance from crime. Current unemployment rates in western countries have aggravated the ability of persons who constitute vulnerable populations, including those with criminal records or with histories of incarceration, from finding adequate employment. Considerations for education, vocational training and employment efforts that are both institutional and community based are important aspects of making “successful” reintegration possible for parolees. To this end, we seek submissions dealing with these diverse programs and needs—or theoretically contributions—for an edited book provisionally titled Employment and Reintegration: Defining Success while Navigating Employment in Reentry. We welcome abstracts for consideration by April 30, 2015 with the full paper due by October 30, 2015 so that we meet a publication of May 2016. The paper length should be between 5000 and 7000 words, although longer chapters will be considered. The purpose of the publication is to stimulate both academic and practitioner attention to this critical area of needed efforts to facilitate desistance from crime.
Abstracts due: April 30, 2015

GLOBAL CRIME - SPECIAL ISSUE Back to Top
Global Crime invites contributions to the special issue "Illegal Markets in Cyberspace" with Guest Editor Thomas Holt of Michigan State University. The topic is purposefully broad in scope, and hopes to attract researchers from a diversity of fields. We welcome empirical studies which focus on on-line illegal markets.
The Internet, e-commerce technologies, and anonymous hosting services have fostered the growth of a range of illicit markets in on-line spaces. Individuals may now purchase everything from sexual services to firearms to personal identity documents via marketplaces operating via forums, websites, and increasingly, sites on the so-called "dark web" hosted on Tor. Though research has begun to assess the behaviors and processes of market participants for the range of deviant and illicit services available, there is still a wide range of studies needed to better understand the relational networks between actors, the scope of offending enabled by these markets, similarities between real and virtual markets, and the ways that they may be disrupted by law enforcement. Thus, Global Crime is currently soliciting manuscripts that employ both qualitative and quantitative data to empirically explore any form of deviant or illicit markets operating in on-line spaces. Manuscripts are welcome to focus on any of the topics identified above, as well as other areas such as offender decision-making and risk management strategies. Submitted manuscripts may be interdisciplinary in nature, and advance both our understanding of these markets and provide key implications for policy and practice.
The deadline to submit papers is September 1st, 2015 with publication scheduled for May 2016. Guidelines for authors can be found at http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/authors/fglcauth.asp. Inquiries about the suitability of papers for the Special Issue should be directed to Thomas Holt, PhD, Associate Professor, School of Criminal Justice, Michigan State University, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically through the Global Crime website which can be found at: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/fglc. Please specify that the manuscript is a candidate for the Special Issue "Illegal Markets in Cyberspace"

JONES & BARTLETT CRIME TYPES BOOK SERIES Back to Top
Call for Book Proposal
Jones & Bartlett Learning is requesting proposals for an exciting new book series, edited by Professor Heith Copes. The series will consist of a number of books where each is devoted to a specific form of crime and is written by a top scholar in the field. The goal of the series is to provide a convenient resource for those researching a type of offense or offender that will be much more comprehensive, efficient, and effective than book chapters or encyclopedia entries. This series will enhance education for criminal justice and criminology students and researchers, provide useful information for instructors and professors teaching these topics, and will help policy makers develop effective policy.
We welcome book proposals on a wide variety of crimes including, but not limited to, homicide, rape, burglary, drug crimes, computer crimes, and motor vehicle theft. Above all, we wish to publish books that will advance understanding on specific types of crime by synthesizing the vast knowledge about particular infractions.
All proposals will be evaluated strictly according to their individual merits and compatibility with the aims of the series. In accord with this policy, we welcome proposals from new authors as well as from those with an established publishing record. Titles accepted for publication in the series will be supported by an engaged and careful peer review process, including impartial assessments by members of an international editorial advisory board consisting of leading scholars in the field.*
We are seeking proposals that fit the previous description. Please send book proposals or questions to Heith Copes (firstname.lastname@example.org), Series Editor, University of Alabama at Birmingham, 1201 University Boulevard, Suite 210, Birmingham, AL, 35294.

Special Issue: Considering the State of Routine Activities Theory To Account For Cybercrimes (May 2016 issue)
Over the last decade scholars have explored the empirical utility of Routine Activities Theory to account for multiple forms of cybercrime victimization. This line of inquiry was driven in part by Yar's (2005) argument regarding the spatial temporal disconnects of cyberspace, thereby limiting the perceived applicability of this theory. Various studies have explored this and other claims, leading to an empirical literature that provides mixed support for the role of guardianship, target suitability, and routine behaviors online along with multiple operationalizations of core theoretical concepts. Thus, there is a need to consider the current state of Routine Activities Theory to account for cybercrime victimization, and consider strategies to better adapt this theory to on-line spaces. This special issue welcomes both empirical research articles and theoretical pieces exploring any form of cybercrime victimization and should seek to advance the state of this theory.
All submitted manuscripts will be peer reviewed. An abstract of approximately 100 words must accompany the manuscript. Manuscripts must be 30 pages or less, double-spaced, including the abstract, references, and all figures and tables. Manuscripts should be received no later than May 1, 2015.

Manuscripts should be in MS Word format and conform to the formatting style of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th ed.).

Besides minimally requiring the empirical context of an Asian society, comparative studies (i.e. inter or intra-regional) of the aforementioned themes are highly encouraged as well. The issue will be guest edited by Narayanan Ganapathy, National University of Singapore.

The Journal of Law and Courts will publish in print and electronic formats beginning in 2013, and is now accepting submissions.
For complete submission guidelines, visit the journal’s home page: www.journals.uchicago.edu/jlc.
“The journal will be a truly interdisciplinary forum for those who study law and courts regardless of methodological or theoretical approach,” said David Klein, a professor at the University of Virginia’s Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics and the journal’s inaugural editor. “Most journals in this field are focused narrowly on specific subtypes of scholarship. In the end, we too often read and write for only small groups of scholars much like ourselves and fail to keep up with the ideas of those who share our broad interests but approach them differently. The Journal of Law and Courts will have the central mission of promoting communication and intellectual fertilization across traditional boundaries.”
To that end, the editorial team seeks submissions from scholars in political science departments and law schools as well as from departments of anthropology, economics, history, psychology, and sociology. The journal will welcome both qualitative and quantitative empirical studies as well as purely theoretical essays.
“As we consider papers for publication, substance will be valued far above either form or method,” Dr. Klein said. “The most important criteria for publication in JLC will be that the core issues or questions addressed in a paper strike a wide swath of the law and courts community as interesting and important and that they be addressed in a highly professional and effective manner.”
Serving along with Editor David Klein is an editorial board of highly accomplished scholars who are representative of the journal’s theoretical and methodological diversity:
Brandon Bartels, George Washington University
Pamela Brandwein, University of Michigan
Keith Bybee, Syracuse University
Javier Couso, Universidad Diego Portales, Chile
Charles Epp, University of Kansas
Leslie Goldstein, University of Delaware
Stacia Haynie, Louisiana State University
Ran Hirschl, University of Toronto
Jeffrey Lax, Columbia University,
Lynn Mather, University at Buffalo, SUNY
Julie Novkov, University at Albany, SUNY
Suzanna Sherry, Vanderbilt University
Georg Vanberg, University of North Carolina
Each submission selected for publication by the editor will be reviewed by at least one board member to ensure that the piece has cross-boundary appeal. In other respects the journal will follow standard peer-review procedures, with a minimum of three referees providing reports on each submission via a double-blind review process. The journal accepts only single submissions.
The journal’s electronic edition will be included with all University of Chicago Press Journals in the JSTOR Current Scholarship Program, making its content available and discoverable for scholars all over the world. Content will also be available through leading third-party search and discovery services. Individual subscriptions are available through the Press and via membership in the Law and Courts Organized Section of APSA.
“Section members told us they wanted a forum that encouraged greater intellectual cohesion in the section," said Christopher Zorn, professor of political science at Penn State and chair of the APSA Law and Courts Section. “JLC will accomplish that goal.”
The University of Chicago Press Journals Division distributes more than 50 journals and hardcover serials, presenting original research from international scholars in the social sciences, humanities, education, biological and medical sciences, and physical sciences.

JUSTICE RESEARCH AND POLICY Back to Top
The Journal of the Justice Research and Statistics Association
Justice Research and Policy is a semiannual, peer-reviewed journal that strives to bridge the gap between criminal justice researchers and practitioners. We welcome manuscripts that relate to some aspect of applied criminal justice research, program evaluation, or data analysis. The peer-review process normally takes three to four months.
- The impact of programs and policies on problems in the criminal and juvenile justice systems
- Research or data analysis that has influenced the passage of legislation or resulted in changes in policies in federal, state, and local agencies
- The development of new analytical approaches and their application to justice issues
- The improvement of data systems
- Research or analysis that has provided a basis for the development of new programs
- Analysis of issues that has had a demonstrable effect on policymakers or programs
JRP only considers original, unpublished manuscripts not under review by other journals. Manuscripts should be 20 to 30 pages in length, double-spaced, and include an abstract of 50-100 words. We prefer graphics in either jpeg or tiff files, placed at the end of the manuscript, along with any tables, with call-outs in the text to indicate placement. References and citations as well as general manuscript format should conform to the guidelines in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.
JRP considers three types of articles:
- Research Articles should contain a literature review, description of the methodology, description of results, and a conclusion. The relevance of the findings to the formation of policy should be specifically addressed.
- Policy Articles should contain a statement of the problem that prompted the investigation, a review of other policy or practice concerned with the same issue, and a description of the steps taken to understand and solve the problem. A conclusion should address the implications of the findings and/or the impact of the investigation on policy. References may or may not be needed.
- Research Notes are brief articles with a smaller focus. Literature reviews are not necessarily required, although some background to place the research in context is needed.
Please send all manuscripts and questions to email@example.com.

- Submissions should strive to be objective, non-partisan, evidence-based and carefully documented;
- Articles should represent original research that has not been published elsewhere and that is when submitted not under consideration or review by another journal;
- Copyright of articles remains with the authors - but so does legal responsibility for any content;
- PT wishes to be informed beforehand about re-publication of articles originally published in PT;
- PT does not require payment from, or offer payment to, authors of articles nor do the Editorial Team and the Editorial Board receive or accept payment for their work;
- To guarantee unbiased peer-review, articles should be submitted to the editor-in-chief in two files: (i) full article with name(s) of author(s), abstract, complete text with endnotes and author(s) biography/-ies and (ii) an anonymous version without the “About the Authors” section at the end.
- Submissions should be about 4,000 words long, have endnotes in square brackets [not footnotes or Harvard citation] and should preferably be written in WORD, letter size .12, font Times New Roman. The length of articles is, however, negotiable.
Perspectives on Terrorism hosts articles that reflect a diversity of opinions. The views expressed therein, and the empirical evidence cited in their support, remain the sole responsibility of the contributing authors; they do not necessarily reflect positions and views of the journal’s Editorial Team or its parent organisation,the Terrorism Research Initiative.

Police Practice & Research –Special Issue on Policing Drug Markets
Eduardo Paes-Machado, Universidade Federal da Bahia, Brazil (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Christopher Birkbeck, University of Salford, UK (email@example.com)
From the inception of prohibitionist drug policy, the policing of drug markets has been highly problematic and challenging. The arguments have been well rehearsed: while the “war on drugs” has given increased operative capacity to the police, its main result has been a dramatic increase in the prison population based on enforcement directed at young, poor, minority drug users and small dealers. Alongside this, there has been little success in combating drug use and dealing by middle and upper class users or in eradicating large-scale trafficking. There has also been increased corruption and a spiral of violence in various countries, notably those with less well-established democratic traditions. Such developments have given renewed vigour to debates about criminalization and legalization, whether in specific relation to marijuana or to a wider range of substances. This special issue of Police Practice and Research seeks to bring together recent work that examines the continuities, and particularly the discontinuities, of policing drug markets.
Colleagues interested in contributing an article (7,500 words) should send a proposed title and abstract (200 words) to the guest editors.

STABILITY: INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SECURITY AND DEVELOPMENT Back to Top
Stability welcomes articles from a range of disciplines, including political science, development studies, international relations, sociology, criminology, anthropology, psychology and the law, among others. The journal will focus upon stabilisation through international missions as well as by governments within their own territories. This may include crime prevention efforts or counter-narcotics strategies insofar as they include a range of means and tactics (e.g., coercive force, diplomacy, communications, humanitarian or development assistance, etc.). However, for demonstration purposes, the following topics would likely appear relatively regularly:
- Civil-military interaction
- Conflict prevention/risk reduction
- Constitutional and legislative affairs
- Correlates of conflict
- Corruption and illicit networks
- Counterinsurgency tactics
- Crime reduction
- Demographics and human geography
- Disarmament, demobilisation & reintegration
- Economic growth and livelihoods
- Governance and political legitimacy
- International cooperation/organization
- Judicial/justice sector reform
- Law and legal regimes
- Organised crime and gang violence
- Peacekeeping or peace support operations
- Security sector reform
- Stability operations
- State- and nation-building
- Urban studies and challenges
- Whole of government or whole of system approaches
Many other topics will be considered for publication. If you are uncertain as to whether your research would match this journal’s criteria, please contact the editors.
Stability will primarily publish research articles but will also feature shorter “practice notes” and “commentaries” insofar as they are well informed, critical and contribute to knowledge and thinking in a useful manner.
- Research articles must be between 5,000 and 8,000 words, including all notes but not including the reference list/bibliography. Under special circumstances, articles up to 10,000 words may be accepted for publication. Research articles should present original findings based upon rigorous empirical or theoretical research.
- Practice notes must be between 2,000 and 4,000 words, including all notes but not including the reference list/bibliography. These should provide an account of a programme related to stabilisation which appears to be particularly effective, ineffective, innovative or otherwise notable. These should NOT comprise glowing case studies of projects implemented by the author or his/her organisation and must contribute useful analysis.
- Commentaries should be between 1,000 and 2,000 words and should reflect upon or critique a "happening" such as a policy shift, release of a major study or other notable occurrence related to stabilisation. Commentaries are particularly welcome from distinguished specialists. Authors interested in submitting a commentary piece should discuss the content with the editors before submitting a manuscript.

STUDIES IN CONFLICT AND TERRORISM (SCT) Back to Top
Call for papers for a special issue of Studies in Conflict and Terrorism on “Measurement issues in the study of terrorism”
Guest edited by Joshua D. Freilich and Gary LaFree
While the quality of terrorism research has greatly improved in the last decade, measurement issues have been under explored and future research could do more in this area to further improve the field’s rigor. To take examples from both qualitative and quantitative studies:
Despite the common refrain that it is difficult to talk to terrorists due to safety and access issues, scholars have actually interviewed terrorists from almost every continent and extremist ideological belief system. But, most of these interviews were retrospective which raises the possibility that they suffered from ‘retrospective construction.’ Yet, most terrorism studies that employ the interview method fail to note this methodological challenge and do not explain what steps, if any, were taken to overcome it. In addition, most interview studies provide little detail on such potentially important issues as the interview setting, or the specific nature of the interview protocols used.
Methodological problems are also common in quantitative terrorism studies. For example, while scholars have increasingly made use of terrorism databases to conduct statistical studies, inter-rater reliability tests on the construction of these data bases are rarely reported. At times even the issue of missing values is not discussed. Relatedly, there have been few studies that have looked at selectivity bias or created error profiles (i.e., listing non-sampling errors that could occur in each step of the database’s creation). Finally, the failure of most studies to use control groups has hindered the advance of terrorism research.
In this special issue of Studies in Conflict and Terrorism (SCT), we propose a direct focus on “measurement issues in the study of terrorism” by both qualitative and quantitative studies.
Manuscripts are due January15th, 2015. Submitted MSs will be sent to 3 scholars with expertise in the area. The guest editors will also provide feedback. In consultation with SCT's editorial board decisions on each MS will be made (reject, R/R, or accept with revisions).
Authors will receive the reviews and the editorial decision by April 15th 2015. Authors receiving revise and resubmits will submit revised papers by June 15th 2015. Revised manuscripts will be sent back out to reviewers and final decisions will be made by the guest editors in consultations with SCT’s editorial board in September 2015. Authors of accepted paper will have until October 15th 2015 to address reviewer comments and submit final drafts. We anticipate submitting the entire volume and placing it in the publication queue in November 2015 and for the special issue to be published in March 2016.
Questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
