American Journal of Criminal Justice Call for Papers

Sponsored by the Southern Criminal Justice Association, the American Journal of Criminal Justice was founded in 1975 to disseminate empirical research and academic commentary on a wide array of criminal justice topics and issues. Articles address contemporary developments, evidence-based practice discovery, and challenges across the three prongs of the criminal and juvenile justice systems. Additional interest areas include juvenile delinquency, applied criminology, the drugs-crime nexus, women and crime, immigration and crime, and other topics germane to the justice system. The AJCJ publishes original applied and pure research articles that feature a broad range of methodologies and theoretical perspectives. Manuscripts go through a blind review process. A new “namesake realization” initiative to elevate the publication includes a larger, diverse, and multidisciplinary editorial board of prominent and emerging scholars, thematic guest edited issues, and award of a social science citation index factor in 2018.

The American Journal of Criminal Justice is proud to announce an increase in publication to six times per year beginning in 2019. Prospective authors can submit their work by visiting
