Could your team be the new editors of Criminology & Criminal Justice (CCJ)

CCJ is the official journal of the British Society of Criminology.  It is a leading, peer- reviewed journal of original research and thinking on all areas of crime and criminal justice and seeks to reflect the vibrancy of the discipline of criminology throughout the UK and internationally. Our current editorial team, from a consortium of Scottish universities, will finish their tenure at the end of 2020 and so we are launching a call for a new team at this conference.

This is an exciting opportunity and we expect a number of criminology teams may be interested, whether they are based in one institution or spread across several.  Current co- editor-in-chief Professor Michele Burman and editorial assistant Dr Caitlin Gormley are here at Lincoln if you wish to speak with them about their experience. Please email Michele ( to set up a time to meet during the course of Thursday or  on Friday morning.


An invitation to tender is currently in the members’ area of our website with a deadline of 3 February 2020.  We are aiming to have a preferred bidder identified by April 2020 with the successful team in position by the summer of 2020 in order to be able to shadow the current team for the last few months of the existing contract.  For more information contact BSC Executive Director Dr Charlotte Harris on
