About the Journal

The Czech Criminology (Česká kriminologie) is a professional peer-reviewed journal that publishes original work of domestic and foreign authors. It is published since 2016 by the Czech Society of Criminology.

The scope of the journal corresponds to the thematic breadth and multidisciplinary nature of criminology as a discipline and opens the door to the theoretical and empirical discussion about crime, its extent, development, specific forms and manifestations, perpetrators and victims, as well as the possibilities of its control. It also deals with other areas of socially undesirable phenomena, which are not legally defined as crime, but can be understood as its correlates (e.g. bullying in schools, prostitution or substance abuse). The journal is published twice a year in electronic form and invites scholars to submit their manuscripts (papers, research studies, methodological contributions) to the peer-review process, as well as medallions, reviews and reports that correspond with the scope of the journal.

The journal is indexed in CEEOL and CEJSH databases.

The journal is published in open access mode. All content is freely available without user fees. Users can read the full text, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to full-text articles in this journal without prior permission from the publisher or author. The journal is published under license CC BY-NC-ND 4.0. 

The Czech Criminology Review is published with the financial support of the Czech Academy of Sciences.


Czech Criminological Society

The Czech Society of Criminology (CSC) was founded in 2012. Its aim is to promote the development of criminology as an independent scientific discipline in the Czech Republic and enable collaboration among scholars who deal with crime and other social pathologies. To fulfill this mission, the CSC organizes national and international conferences, seminars, lectures and courses, collaborates with professional societies, institutions and organizations with a similar focus in the Czech Republic and abroad, supports criminological research and dissemination, publication and popularization of criminological relevant information and knowledge, as well as teaching of criminology at colleges and universities. Any expert in the field of criminology, or other related field, as well as those who work in the area of crime control and use criminological knowledge to perform their job can become the member of CSC. The company is also open to students of colleges and universities interested in criminology.
