The journal – A review of its first 45 years
MetadataShow full item record
Since the inception of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology in March 1968, the journal has, without doubt, become the leading criminological journal in the Australasian region. The founding Editor, Dr Allen Bartholomew, had many hopes and expectations for the journal envisaging '忡 systematic study of all the measures to be taken in the spheres of prevention實 legislation, of the enforcement of criminal law, of punishments and other methods of treatment'. In this article, we track the journal's progress from its inception in 1968 to 2012 (45 years into its future) to assess whether Dr Bartholomew's hopes and expectations have materialised and in what ways the study of crime and its prevention has evolved over the years. We survey the journal's 45 year journey in in an ever-changing and dynamic environment by examining issues such as gender and trends in origins of authors, trends in research methods, the crime issues and how they have evolved over time, and the journals impact on public policy.
