Section policies

Thematic articles
Each issue presents an aspect of the same issue in the form of a thematic dossier. Guest writers generally solicit specialists in the field and invite them to submit an article. The submission of texts in this section is reserved for invited authors. However, if you are interested in one of the topics to be published, please contact the editorial office at admin [at] criminologie [dot] ca.

Non-themed articles Each issue has a section for off-topic articles, which includes articles submitted by researchers who wish to report on the results of their recent work. This section is open to everyone and covers a variety of topics. All articles submitted to this section are pre-reviewed internally before being peer-reviewed.

Peer review process

Each anonymized article is submitted to two anonymous reviewers not affiliated with the Université de Montréal.


All submissions should be sent to the Revue Criminologie from the online article management system hosted on this website. Authors who do not have an account on our online article management system can create one by clicking on this link.
