Criminal Justice Policy Review
(CJPR), published bi-monthly, is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal committed to the study of criminal justice policy through quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methodological approaches. CJPR serves as a bridge between academics, policymakers, and practitioners by publishing sound research that addresses important issues in crime and justice and examines the implementation and effectiveness of criminal justice policies, programs, and practices.

CJPR is published quarterly and accepts appropriate articles, essays, research notes, and book reviews. Manuscripts appropriate for submission include:

  • full-length articles that present the findings of original empirical research
  • review essays that thoroughly review and critique the “state of current research” on a particular topic and discuss the associated policy implications, or those that address an emerging issue in the field and outline a proposed research agenda
  • research notes, allowing authors to present early and preliminary results
  • reviews of books on relevant topics in criminal justice. In addition to its regular issues, CJPR also provides a forum for scheduled special issues on notable topics in crime and justice.
The journal appeals to criminologists, sociologists, political scientists, and other scholars and professionals with an interest in crime policy and research.
