This Journal Ranked by Scopus as top for Law in Australia

2018-07-06

The International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy has been ranked by Scopus as the top Law journal in Australia. The journal has been steadily growing in international stature and recognition with over a quarter of a million downloads from all over the world. It only just became eligible for ranking.
It is extremely gratifying to be ranked in Q2 (second quartile) by Scopus for Journal Quality, a not insignificant feat for a new journal from the global south, given the way this data base is skewed towards journals from the English speaking countries of the global north.
Moreover, within Australia the Journal is ranked as number 1 for all Law journals included the Scopus data base. The editors wish to acknowledge the hard work on the International Editorial Board and dedicated authors in achieving this international level of success.
