Theme Issues
The Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice publishes quarterly coverage of the theoretical and scientific aspects of the study of crime and the practical problems of law enforcement, administration of justice and the treatment of offenders, particularly in the Canadian context. Since 1958, this peer-reviewed journal has provided a forum for original contributions and discussions in the fields of criminology and criminal justice. The CJCCJ emphasizes original scientific research. Recent issues have explored topics such as the Youth Criminal Justice Act, wrongful convictions, criminology research in Canada, and punishment and restorative justice. The Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice appeals to anyone needing to keep abreast of recent criminological findings and opinions: justice administrators, researchers and practitioners and academics.

Owned by the Canadian Criminal Justice Association (, the journal counts subscribers in over 35 countries and is well received in academic circles. It is often quoted in textbooks, manuals, the media, other journals, and training curricula. This journal is the technical publication of the Canadian Criminal Justice Association.

The Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice is a forum for inter-disciplinary discussion of all aspects of criminology. Articles appearing do not necessarily express the views of the Association.

The Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice exists for the purpose of publishing, in English or French, original research, information, and views on all aspects of criminology and criminal justice, with priority given to matters relevant to Canada or to Canadians. Its intended audience comprises researchers, students, policy makers, practitioners, and, ultimately, members of the public interested in these fields.

The Editorial Committee seeks submissions that are based on high-quality quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods research. The Committee will also consider publication of articles that address critical issues in criminal justice policy (preferably, evidence-based) and short research notes, which report on empirical results with less attention than a regular article to theoretical framing and implications.
