Criminology

Editor in Chief | Editorial Board | Articles and Contributors | Graduate Award

As a discipline which examines crime as a social phenomenon, criminology is a constantly changing and expanding field. Because of its broad, interdisciplinary nature, a vast amount of scholarship and research already exists in addition to a regular influx of new research and material. Oxford Bibliographies in Criminology is a much-needed online guide to the essential literature across the various subfields of criminology. It combines the best features of a high-level encyclopedia and a traditional bibliography in a style tailored to meet the needs of today’s online researchers. Each article, written and reviewed by top scholars in the field, is rich with citations and annotations, expert recommendations, and narrative pathways to the most important works for virtually all areas of criminology.

 

Editor in Chief

Richard Wright is Curators’ Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Editor-in-Chief of the British Journal of Sociology, and a Fellow of the American Society of Criminology. Primarily an urban ethnographer, he has been studying serious street criminals such as carjackers, armed robbers, drug dealers and residential burglars in real-life settings and circumstances for over two decades. He is the author or co-author of five books and dozens of scholarly articles and book chapters, including Armed Robbers in Action and Burglars on the Job, which won the 1994-95 Outstanding Scholarship in Crime and Delinquency Award from the Society for the Study of Social Problems. He also is co-editor of The Sage Handbook of Fieldwork. His most recent book, co-authored with Bruce Jacobs, is Street Justice: Retaliation in the Criminal Underworld.

GRADUATE STUDENT ARTICLE AWARD

The Oxford Bibliographies Graduate Student Article Award is an annual, invitation-only award that offers experienced doctoral candidates an opportunity to contribute to Oxford Bibliographies in Criminology, to draw attention to their work, and to add a peer-reviewed publication to their CVs. Invitation is by faculty nomination only. Nominations are now being accepted.

“Graduate students are by necessity deeply and critically engaged in the literature within emerging areas of research. This knowledge puts them in an ideal position to write for Oxford Bibliographies. I am particularly excited about the potential of this award as a pathway to including articles on cutting-edge topics, and I think it is an important acknowledgement of the significant contribution graduate students routinely make to the production of new scholarship.”

--Damon Zucca, Reference and Online Publisher, Oxford University Press

We want to hear from you.
Oxford Bibliographies is a partnership between the publisher and the academic community, and we invite you to participate. Please feel welcome to email Anthony Wahl, our subject editor, with comments, suggestions, or questions.
