the criminology and criminal justice network
The first issue of the International Journal of Rural Criminology was released in early December. It is an electronically based journal published through the Knowledge Bank of The Ohio State Universities Libraries. IJRC provides a place for publication of both theoretical and empirical articles about rural crime. Its perspective is global and the journal will consider any topic that is both criminological and rural in focus. However, merely inserting the word 'rural' in a manuscript's title and then ignoring the cultural, economic, human, political and social dimensions of rural places and peoples is a form of tokenism insufficient to merit consideration for publication in IJRC. The next issue will be released in early June, 2012.
