Call for papers on Terrorism and Violent Extremist Offenders
Description:

Special Issue of the Journal of Quantitative Criminology

Call for papers on “Terrorism and Violent Extremist Offenders” 

 

Guest editors:  Gary LaFree (University of Maryland); Catrien Bijleveld / Frank Weerman (NSCR, the Netherlands)

 

The aim of this special issue is to bring together original studies that employ or advance quantitative methods in the study of terrorism.  Studies that examine radicalization and recruitment to violent extremism, characteristics and life course trajectories of terrorist and violent extremist offenders and their organizations, or terror attacks, will be considered for review. Questions that may be addressed include the following:  What are the drivers, triggers, or risk factors for involvement in terrorism and violent extremism? What are the similarities and differences between different types of offenders? What are the network characteristics of terrorist and extremist organizations and groups, and how do they change over time?  What are the spatial and temporal patterns and characteristics of terrorist attacks and how are they explained?  

 

This special issue will also specifically seek to include contributions that focus on the recent wave of attacks related to or inspired by organizations like the Islamic State (ISIS) and Al Qa’eda. Studies focusing on other offenders and organizations involved in terrorism and political violence with an extremist background from all groups and ideological positions are also invited and encouraged to submit for review. We are particularly interested in contributions that focus on methodological and statistical advances in the study of terrorism and violent extremist offenders.  This may also include quantitative methods and approaches to examining trends in terrorism or to predicting terrorism or identifying terrorists and violent extremists. 

 

All submissions will be BLIND-reviewed. Therefore, please exclude all author and affiliation information from the body text of your manuscript when submitting for review.  An abstract of 250 words or less must accompany the manuscript (for more complete details, see: http://www.springer.com/criminology/journal/10940?detailsPage=pltci_2976734).  

 

Manuscripts should be received no later than July 1, 2018.  Please send two electronic copies of the manuscript, one complete version (with a cover page containing the author’s name, title, institutional affiliation with complete address, email and phone contact information; acknowledgments; research grant information).  Manuscripts should be uploaded to the Journal of Quantitative Criminology's website (http://joqc.edmgr.com/) and marked as a submission to the special issue (please do not select 'original submission').  All submission guidelines and procedures can be found here as well (http://www.springer.com/criminology/journal/10940).

Call for Papers: Gender, Crime and Criminal Justice
Description:

A great deal of theoretical and empirical work has established that gender is one of the strongest, and most persistent, correlates of criminal offending and victimization. This association holds across time and across space. Additionally, gender and gendered views can shape law making itself, influencing the criminalization and stigmatization of behaviors, which can further integrate gendered cultural structures and offending. Simply, if one wants to understand crime (be it offending, victimization, or criminalization), one must understand its gendered nature. [...]

The submission deadline is 30 December 2018. You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in advance (socsci@mdpi.com). 

Social Sciences is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes. We are very pleased to announce that Social Sciences has been accepted for funding by the Knowledge Unlatched initiative (http://www.knowledgeunlatched.org). The Article Processing Charges (350 CHF) for papers published in the journal are fully covered via the Knowledge Unlatched crowd-funding mechanism. Please note this is a pilot program experimenting ways to support authors in the humanities and social sciences fields publishing in open access format.

Calls for Submission to a Special Issue
Description:

Calls for Submissions to a Special Issue of the

International Journal of Comparative and Applied Criminal Justice
Making Rights Real: Rights Protection for Crime Victims

Special Issue Editors: Prof. Paul Cassell, Dr. Robyn Holder, A/Prof. Tyrone Kirchengast

Since the 1985 UN Declaration of Basic Principles of Justice for Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power, countries have legislated to recognize the special status of victims within criminal procedures and to set out the basic obligations of police, prosecutors, courts, and corrections to respond. Alongside legislated legal reforms, civil society groups have pressed for greater recognition of and protections for specific victimized populations to enable access to justice. At their introduction, rights instruments were faulted as soft law and lacking enforcement provisions. Rights for victims, it was said, were not ‘real’. However, while there have been advances in many areas, there has been no comprehensive compilation of scholarship on contemporary practice in the promotion, protection, and enforcement of rights for crime victims.

 

The Special Issue of the International Journal of Comparative and Applied Criminal Justice (IJCACJ) aims to fill this gap in the academic literature by bringing together research on these dispersed activities in one volume. It will comprise a comprehensive and comparative review of existing crime victims’ regimes, critical reflection on their efficacy, and suggestions for future reforms. Contributors from different countries and different legal systems are invited to submit articles (6000 words) that are conceptual and/or empirical. Data-driven pieces may be quantitative or qualitative or mixed. The Special Issue will pay particular attention to existing practices with a view to influencing future policy and law reform. In order to paint this comprehensive but pragmatic picture, contributions will examine (but not be limited to):

·         Strategic litigation

·         Human rights as framework for victims’ rights

·         Civil society advocacy

·         Statutory rights protecting entities

·         Strengths and limitations of policy directives

·         Deploying third-party legal mechanisms

·         New roles for private counsel for victims

·         Commissions of inquiries and law reform
 

 

Submission Instructions

Contributions should be submitted directly to the IJCACJ through ScholarOne with the subject line as Special Issue: Victim Rights. Each article will be reviewed by ‘blind’ peer assessors selected by the IJCACJ in their usual process. Guest editors will offer a preliminary review of contributions. Publication is not automatic. Contributions for the special issue will comply with the IJCACJ guidelines. The deadline for all contributions is 1st March 2019 with a view to online publication in December 2019.

Litha Summer Solstice - Wicca/Neo Pagan
Description:
On this day, typically JUN-21, the daytime hours are at a maximum in the Northern hemisphere, and night time is at a minimum. It is officially the first day of summer. It is also referred to as Midsummer because it is roughly the middle of the growing season throughout much of Europe. "Solstice" is derived from two Latin words: "sol" meaning sun, and "sistere," to cause to stand still. This is because, as the summer solstice approaches, the noonday sun rises higher and higher in the sky on each successive day. On the day of the solstice, it rises an imperceptible amount, compared to the day before. In this sense, it "stands still."

Missummer (Midsumarsblot) - Asatru
Description:

It was at this time that most foreign trade was conducted, as well as shipping, fishing expeditions, and raiding activity. It was not without its dark side. Midsummer was recognized as the longest day of the year; thus, the year begins to age after this time and the days grow progressively shorter.
