The Leading Index Covering Criminology and Criminal Justice

This bibliographic database provides records selected from the most notable sources in the criminal justice field. It covers journals from around the world, reflecting the increasing globalization of criminology studies.

Extensive Coverage

Covering all areas of criminal justice, Criminal Justice Abstracts includes hundreds of thousands of records and provides cover-to-cover indexing and abstracts for hundreds of journals. Other features include searchable cited references and a publications authority of key titles. This database was previously provided by Sage Publications.


Criminal Justice Abstracts offers much more content—for a broader span of years—than I thought possible, and the content is first-rate. So is the delivery system. It gets a ten and an enthusiastic recommendation. Not just for libraries serving criminal justice researchers, this file will be used by researchers across the disciplines (I started to list the subject areas, but there are too many!). Highly recommended for public, academic, and special libraries.
