The York University Criminological Review (YUCR)  is a free, open access journal published once annually. We are committed to facilitating critical discussion about topics relating to crime and criminal justice, and their intersection with other disciplines in the natural and social sciences. Every published article goes through a rigorous review and editing process over the summer, and publication is scheduled for the fall of each year.

This journal enjoys a thematic scope that encompasses a variety of disciplines, such as (but not limited to), the study of crime, law, politics, governmentality, sociology, media and communications, policy and political economy.
