Aims and Scope

The Monatsschrift für Kriminologie und Strafrechtsreform (Journal of Criminology and Penal Reform) is a forum for research and criminal policy in the fields of crime and crime control within German speaking countries. It covers the entire spectrum of disciplines that contribute to criminological research: psychology, sociology, psychiatry, law, politics, economics, education, history, medicine, and forensic sciences. The broad scope of the journal is further demonstrated by the composition of its advisory board members. The publication intends to keep its readers informed of current criminological findings and policy developments. In general, the articles are published in German, though some articles and special issues from abroad are in English.
