Crime Science is an international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal with an applied orientation.

Full Text: Vols. 1-28 (1989-2020) Title Varies: Vols. 1-6 (1989-1995) as Journal of Human Justice

The journal Critical Criminology explores social, political, and economic justice from alternative perspectives, including anarchistic, cultural, feminist, integrative, Marxist, peace-making, postmodernist, and left-realist criminology. Rather than limit the scope of its coverage to state definitions of crime, Critical Criminology focuses on issues of social harm and social justice, including work exploring the intersecting lines of class, gender, race/ethnicity, and heterosexism. The journal benefits professionals interested in alternative methodologies and theories, including chaos theory, non-linear analysis, and complex systems science as it pertains to the study of crime and criminal justice. The journal offers works that focus on creative and cooperative solutions to justice problems, plus strategies for the construction of a more inclusive society.

3. European Journal of Law and Economics

The European Journal of Law and Economics provides readers with high-quality theoretical and empirical research in which both the legal and economic dimensions merge and combine. The journal welcomes articles that promote a better understanding of legal phenomena, legal decisions made by judges, courts or regulatory agencies, and involving economic tools. Theoretical papers are welcome, provided they have a strong basis in law and economics. The journal also welcomes case studies, as well as empirical analyses—including empirical legal studies—and experimental investigations. The European Journal of Law and Economics does not favor any particular topic but does have a focus on new and emerging problems. European themes are particularly welcome, because the editors feel it is important to exploit Europe’s considerable institutional diversity in order to build a more robust body of theory and empirical evidence. However, the purpose of the journal is also to showcase the diversity of law and economics approaches, as supplied by an international mix of authors.
