Additional Information for Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law
The Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law (OSJCL) is a peer-evaluated, faculty-student cooperative venture published by The Ohio State University Michael E. Moritz College of Law. The Journal is published semi-annually and is a forum for important scholarship written by internationally academics and judges and practioners in the criminal justice field.
The journal's purpose, through its symposium, commentary, and book and cultural review sections, is to provide useful and serious, but also interesting and provocative, discourse on critical issues in the field of criminal justice.
The OSJCL is now one of the most respected and heavily cited criminal justice journals in the English language, cited by courts (including the United States Supreme Court) and academic journals. OSJCL articles have also been reprinted in academic and general-audience books.
Each issue includes solicited scholarly articles, in a symposium format with a Guest Editor, focusing on an important topic in the criminal justice field, and written by experts on the subject. Each issue also contains a Commentary section with briefer essays: provocative reflections on the criminal law that are less formal in structure, shorter on footnotes but long on insight. The Journal also publishes reviews of books, empirical studies, criminal justice reports, and even of movies and other media. Finally, on occasion, we publish high-quality essays written by students of The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
