The Criminal Justice Review (CJR) is a scholarly journal dedicated to presenting a broad perspective on criminal justice issues that has been published for 30 years at GSU, starting with volume 1 in 1976. It focuses on all aspects of crime and the justice system and can feature local, state, or national concerns. Both qualitative and quantitative pieces are encouraged, providing that they adhere to standards of quality scholarship. As a peer-reviewed journal, we encourage the submission of articles, research notes and commentaries that focus on crime and broadly defined justice-related topics.
The Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology entered into an agreement with Sage Publishing Company for Sage to publish the Criminal Justice Review four times annually starting January 1, 2005. The Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology maintains editorial control over the CJR, but Sage markets them, digitizes all back issues for their Full-Text On-Line Criminology Collection, and expands the journal’s reach and impact on the field.
