Journal of Scan. St. in Criminology and Crime Prevention

Journal of Scandinavian Studies in Criminology and Crime Prevention (Nordic) is published by the Scandinavian Research Council for Criminology, together with the Finnish and Norwegian Crime Prevention Councils, the Finnish National Research Institute of Legal Policy and the Department of Criminology at the University of Stockholm. The journal provides opportunities to publish in a peer-reviewed context much of such scientific work that would not be easily available in standard international sources as it is actively searching for and encouraging Nordic authors to report in English, convinced that there is much scientifically and practically interesting and relevant work that deserves to be published to the benefit of audiences unable to follow work available only in the Nordic languages. Over the past two decades, crime prevention has developed into one of the central topics in modern scientific criminology. Hence the journal aims to combine criminological and crime prevention orientated scientific works.

Outlines. Critical Practice Studies

Outlines. Critical Practice Studies (Denmark) combine critique of science, professional practice, and socio-cultural issues in an attempt to intervene in public discourses and establish counter-discourses in various social fields. Outlines. Critical Practice Studies provides a forum for theoretically and empirically informed debates about the relationships between individual subjects, social structures, and historically developed cultural forms in and of practice. The journal is interdisciplinary with a background and focus at the intersections of social and human sciences and philosophy which are established around the idea of practice (in its various forms: Praxis, activity, praxology, process theory etc.). This makes sense because practice, as both material and discursive, both form and process, both subjective and objective, both collective and individual, relays in a distinct way otherwise quite diverse disciplines, traditions, and positions. Perhaps most importantly, it points a way to bridge the gap between modern social theory and postmodern reflections.
