Digital public criminology in Australia and New Zealand: Results from a mixed methods study of criminologists’ use of social media.

Mark Wood, Imogen Richards, Mary Iliadis and Michael McDermott 

This article presents findings that examine the practices and perceptions of criminologists in relation to social media, and insights from an analysis that explores the political and logistical issues raised by respondents. These issues include the democratising potential of social media in criminological research, and its ability to provide representation for historically marginalised populations. Questions pertaining to ‘newsmaking criminology’ and the wider performance of ‘public criminology’ on social media are also addressed.
