Rassegna Italiana di Criminologia
For many years, the Italian Criminology Review has represented a steady reference point, as regards the development of criminal and psychiatric/forensic disciplines, within Italian and international frameworks. The Review, which is the Italian Criminology Society's Official Organ, is also circulated on a European and non-European level, meeting with criteria of selection and review of articles, according to parameters in force, as found in international scientific literature. Over recent years, and consistently with the development of scientific thinking and reality within society, the contributions printed by the Review are directed towards specifically current themes, such as the migration of new types of criminality, AIDS and problems related to this syndrome. Moreover, growing attention is paid to research sectors, such as the study of forensic psychology, of victimisation and of mediation, which, no doubt, represent areas of considerable scientific and professional interest. However, the Review continues to qualify as a comparison point for researchers in various disciplines, thanks to the unswerving attention paid to all contributions endeavouring to achieve integration of an accurate scientific method with proposals containing new ideas and concrete work opportunities. On the ethical and deontological level, the "Italian Criminology Review" was created as a tool for information and updating, planning to give space to self-expression and debate for all operators and researchers able to describe, and to scientifically motivate, their analysis and tendencies, the above without being tied down by any ideological, political or economic requirements. Each of the Review's issues, edited on a quarterly basis, includes news regarding the Italian Criminology Society's activity at Italian and international sectorial congresses and scientific publications of direct interest to those operating in the fields of Law, Criminology, Psychiatry, Forensic Psychology and Legal Medicine. Results of research performed at the Genoa University's International Center of Clinical Criminology, including didactic and scientific activities promoted by the International Society, are the constant object of publication. For these reasons, the Italian Criminology Review sets out to be a useful "working tool", not only for researchers and scholars, but also for those who materially work in Courts, Prisons, the Police Force and the growing and complex sphere of comparison between clinical disciplines and the world of Law.
