Mission

The Journal of Qualitative Criminal Justice & Criminology (JQCJC) is a peer-reviewed, international journal dedicated to the qualitative interpretation and analysis of deviance, law, policy, and social control. The journal features both theoretical and analytical research, as well as manuscripts based on qualitative methodology such as interviewing, participant observation, ethnography, historical analysis, content analysis, and others which do not rely primarily on numerical data. JQCJC welcomes submissions from a variety of perspectives focusing on the qualitative study of crime and society, including criminological, criminal justice, sociological, historical, philosophical, cultural, political, psychological, anthropological, and jurisprudential approaches.
