Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Police Science and Management publishes original empirical work, conceptual articles and theoretical overviews or reviews, as well as articles on good practice or practice evaluation. It seeks to encourage practitioners as well as academics to submit material for publication with a view to advancing knowledge, disseminating good practice and fostering the scientific study of the police and policing.

The principal objective of the journal is to facilitate international exchange, stimulate debate and to encourage closer bonds between academic research into the criminal justice system and the practicalities of its day-to-day management of criminal justice organisations including, but not necessarily confined to, the police. Topics such as police operational techniques, crime pattern analysis, crime investigation management, accountability, performance measurement, interagency cooperation and public attitude surveys are welcome.

Full list of editors and contact details

In 2014 the Police Journal will be renamed as the Police Journal: Theory, Practice and Principles to reflect the changing landscape within which policing operates.
