Call for Papers

Homicide Investigations: Modern UK Perspectives

A special issue of

Journal of Criminological Research, Policy and Practice

Guest Editor: Dr Martin O’Neill, Canterbury Christ Church University

This special issue of Journal of Criminological Research, Policy and Practice aims to address the lack of research on criminal investigation into homicide, together with the challenges of investigative effectiveness, legitimacy and status. This special issue will tap into modern perspectives in light of issues such as problems with recruitment, disclosure, workload, the growing importance of science over craft and greater reliance on the quality of criminal investigation with cuts to the police, CPS and legal aid.

We welcome submissions to this special issue. Topics covered include (but are not limited to):

Homicide reviews

Cold case investigations

Modern Investigative problems (resources, guidance, law)

SIO decision making.

Deadline and Submission Details

The submission deadline for all papers is 31st March 2019

The publication date of this special issue is September 2019
