the criminology and criminal justice network
Los Angeles, CA (September, 14 ) — SAGE’s Criminology and Criminal Justice Books Division received high rankings when compared to other university and commercial academic presses, according to a study in the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences’ publication Journal of Criminal Justice Education.
Researchers asked respondents from the American Society of Criminology and the American Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences to measure the quality and familiarity rankings of 81 presses from America and abroad that publish in the area of Criminology/Criminal Justice (C/CJ). The excellence of the SAGE program was acknowledged in all three of the categories:
The researchers, Shaun L. Gabbidon, George Higgins and Favian Martin, suggest that these rankings can help scholars interested in writing books to make an informed decision when choosing their publisher. Just like the extra respect earned when academics publish journal articles in a highly-ranked publication, the Criminology and Criminal Justice books published by highly-ranked presses like SAGE will garner additional respect in the market.
“We’re delighted that SAGE’s strong publishing program has been ranked so highly in this study of publishers, since our aim is to become the premier publisher for Criminology and Criminal Justice,” commented Jerry Westby, SAGE Publisher. “These rankings suggest we are in a good position to do just that.”
The Journal of Criminal Justice Education (JCJE), an official publication of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS), provides a forum for the examination, discussion and debate of post-secondary education in criminal justice, criminology and related areas. The aim of JCJE is to enhance the quality of higher education in criminal justice and criminology. http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/10511253.asp
