We are delighted to inform you that SAGE Publications and the British Society of Criminology are entering into a new publishing partnership on Criminal Justice. The study of criminology and criminal justice has expanded enormously in recent years and together they provide fruitful areas of research and thinking. Crime and justice research is booming across the globe and the re-titled journal seeks to reflect the vibrancy of the discipline of criminology throughout the UK and internationally. Criminology's current popularity may owe something to its acting as a lightning rod for understanding of many of the pressing concerns and issues of our times. In praising criminology for its centrality to the key debates for social scientists and citizens in the new millennium, Zygmunt Bauman has observed that we learn most about things when they go wrong. Criminology and Criminal Justice aims to provide an international forum dedicated to critical debate in these important areas. The shift in the title from Criminal Justice to Criminology and Criminal Justice does not mean that earlier interests in criminal justice and penal theory and practice will be neglected. However in the light of its role as official journal of the British Society of Criminology, the change in title does represent a broadening out of the journal's focus into issues of offending and responses to crime around the world; original conceptual articles on crime and its control; theoretically-informed empirical studies, including those of policing and justice policy making and policy transfer; debates about the public role of criminology and criminologists. The journal is international in focus and encourages submissions from any part of the globe.
