Western Criminology Review

Official Journal of the Western Society of Criminology

Current issue: Volume 15, No. 1, April 2014


The Western Criminology Review (WCR) is a forum for the publication and discussion of theory, research, policy, and practice in the rapidly changing and interdisciplinary fields of criminology and criminal justice. The journal is intended to reflect local (Western), national, and international concerns. Historical and contemporary perspectives are encouraged, as are diverse methodological approaches. Although manuscripts that rely upon text and tables are invited, authors who use other resources permitted on the internet — e.g., graphics, hypertext links, etc., are also welcome. The publication and distribution of articles will also be accompanied by electronic commentary and discussion.

WCR provides a unique venue for authors and critics. In addition to permitting new modes of expression it also speeds up the publication and distribution of articles and encourages rapid electronic commentary and discussion.

The goal of WCR is to provide an attractive and meaningful outlet for academic and policy related publication and dialogue in a wide variety of substantive areas in criminology and criminal justice. Please direct any inquiries to one of the co-editors listed below.
