Springer Criminology is home to a broad range of research and practice-oriented publications across the field of criminology and criminal justice. We publish exciting research from both prestigious voices and emerging scholars on such subjects as policing, organized crime, quantitative criminology and research methods, developmental and life-course criminology, amongst many others.
Though challenging, 2020 has been an exciting year, during which we launched International Criminology, celebrated the first impact factors for Trends in Organized Crime and Journal of Developmental and Life-Course Criminology, and published timely articles on crime in the COVID-19 age and the effects of systemic racism on criminal justice.
With new SpringerBriefs like The Measurement of Hate Crimes in America, the research we publish is able to engage with a year of tough cultural conversation. As the long-term effects of lockdown are fresh in our minds, Targeting Domestic Abuse with Police Data examines how modern statistical techniques can help police forces understand this phenomenon.
We welcome proposals for new monographs, Springer Briefs, edited collections, textbooks, and reference works.
