Global Crime: Call for papers


Global Crime is a peer-reviewed journal published by Routledge that presents high-calibre scholarship on serious and organized crime. Its coverage is not just on organized crime in the strict sense, but on a wide range of criminal activities, from corruption, illegal market transactions, state crime and terrorism. This focus is deliberately broad and multi-disciplinary, its first aim being to make the best scholarship available to specialists and non-specialists alike. It endorses no particular orthodoxy and draws on authors from a variety of disciplines, including history, sociology, economics, political science, anthropology and area studies. 

The webpage of the journal is at:


During 2006, Federico Varese and Carlo Morselli will be co-editing a special issue on the application of social network analysis to the study of criminal groups. This issue seeks to advance applications of social network analysis in the study of crime, security, and related areas of research. We invite contributors to send both empirical and theoretical papers. 


The deadline for submitting abstracts is March 1, 2006. We expect to receive the papers by October 1, 2006. The special issue will be published in 2007. Authors will receive 50 off-prints and a free copy of the issue.
