Criminology & Public Policy

A nexus between criminological research and public policy

The College of Criminology and Criminal Justice holds editorship of Criminology and Public Policy, an official publication of the American Society of Criminology. This prestigious publication is a peer-review journal devoted to the study of criminal justice policy and practice.

The central objective of the journal is to strengthen the role of research findings in the formulation of crime and justice policy by publishing empirically based, policy-focused articles.

Criminology & Public Policy issues for 2018 and 2019 are now full. Articles submitted to CPP after September 1st, if accepted, will not be published in print until the 2020 issues under CPP’s new editorship (Cynthia Lum and Christopher Koper, George Mason University).
