Criminology Scholarly Peer-review Journal

Criminology is the scientific study of crime, including its causes, responses by law enforcement, and methods of prevention. It is a sub-group of sociology, which is the scientific study of social behavior. There are many fields of study that are used in the field of criminology, including biology, statistics, psychology, psychiatry, economics, and anthropology.

Just as criminology is a sub-group of sociology, criminology itself has several sub-groups, including:

Penology: the study of prisons and prison systems Biocriminology: the study of the biological basis of criminal behavior Feminist criminology: the study of women and crime Criminalistics: the study of crime detection
