The Journal is an interdisciplinary journal designed to respond to intersecting fields and welcomes submissions from researchers and scholars from all disciplines. The fields of criminal law and criminal justice not only intersect in the thoughts and practice around them; they are interdependent in their development and of sufficient public significance to warrant exclusive devotion of a specialized journal. While scholarship around criminal justice has been more welcoming of multi-disciplinary approaches, explicable by the fact of the diversity of criminal justice practitioners, the historical approach has been to treat Criminal Law as a discourse area that is the exclusive remit of legal researchers, scholars and practitioners. The result has been the dichotomization of outlets for scholarship in both fields, limiting the opportunity for many practitioners to benefit from scholarship across the fields.
