With a new name, focus and editorial team, Global Crime will build upon the foundations laid by Transnational Organized Crime to consider serious and organised crime, from its origins to the present. Its focus is deliberately broad and multi-disciplinary, its first aim being to make the best scholarship on organised, serious and transnational crime available to specialists and non-specialists alike. It endorses no particular orthodoxy and will draw on authors from a variety of disciplines, including history, sociology, economics, political science, anthropology and area studies. Furthermore, it covers not just organised crime in the conventional sense, but the whole range of criminal activities, from corruption and illegal market transactions to the shadowy corners where states, terrorist movements and similar actors engage in criminal conspiracy. Global Crime will be published four times per year, and will include substantive research articles, shorter pieces highlighting research in progress and field reports from law-enforcement officials and conference reports. It will also provide unrivalled review coverage of new books and literature on organised crime around the world. All research articles will go through blind peer review in order to maintain the highest academic standards. The editors welcome contributions on any topic relating to organised criminality, its history, activities, relations with the state, its penetration of the economy and its perception in popular culture. Global Crime also seeks submissions in related areas such as corruption, crime and women's studies, illegal migration, terrorism, illicit markets, violence, police studies, and the process of state building. Submissions of articles in the area of methodology are especially welcome. In addition to research articles, the editors encourage submission of conference reports and review papers, shorter pieces on methodological advances or research findings field reports from law enforcement officials, which can give a vivid, non-scholarly description of particular investigations and cases.
