The British Journal of Criminology, Law & Justice (BJCLJ) (ISSN: 2752-8103) is an open-access, international, double-blind peer-reviewed journal published by the Fortune Publishing, United Kingdom. It aims to promote excellence through dissemination of high-quality research findings, specialist knowledge, and discussion of professional issues that reflect the diversity of the related fields.
We publish three times a year (August, December, and April), and do not charge any fee for either reviewing the paper or article processing charges (APCs). However, in relation to various expenses such as secretarial work, secondary anti-plagiarism, website maintenance, data storage, and indexing in different databases, we levy UK £150 for every accepted manuscript.
The standard time for full peer review is typically less than 60 days from receipt of a manuscript to an editor’s decision. If our internal editorial review concludes a manuscript is not suitable for full peer review, then we usually have a decision to authors within 10 days after submission of a manuscript.
The BJCLJ adopted the concept of LOCKSS and CLOCKSS archives to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly content. Then the softcopy of the published papers would also be archived at:
