Global Crime is a social science journal devoted to the study of crime broadly conceived. The editors welcome contributions on any topic relating to crime, including organized criminality, its history, activities, relations with the state, its penetraion of the economy and its perception in popular culture. Global Crime also seeks submissions in 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 dispatches of 2,000-4,000 words. These should be short reports on empirical research, in-depth discussions of specific investigations, or accounts of particularly interesting fieldwork or field trips. Beyond that, we publish Roundtables on key issues or important books, as well as Reviews of recent works.
The journal's focus is deliberately broad and multi-disciplinary and its first aim is to make the best scholarship on crime available to specialists and non-specialists alike.
EXLEGI Director Federico Varese is the Managing Editor of Global Crime, while EXLEGI co-founder Diego Gambetta is a member of the journal's Editorial Board.
