Violence Research Centre


The Journal of Developmental and Life-Course Criminology has announced its new co-Editors-in-Chief - Prof Darrick Jolliffe - Head of the School of Law and Criminology, University of Greenwich, and our Director, Prof Manuel Eisner, University of Cambridge, taking over from Prof Tara McGee and Prof Paul Mazerolle from 1 July 2021.  

The Journal seeks to advance knowledge and understanding of developmental dimensions of offending across the life-course. It welcomes original theoretical and empirical papers, and contributions that explore the translation of developmental and life-course research into policy and practice.  

An interdisciplinary publication, it encourages submissions from related fields such as psychology, statistics, sociology, psychiatry, neuroscience, geography, political science, history, social work, epidemiology, public health and economics. The journal has a new 2020 five-year impact factor of 3.3.

Prof Jolliffe commented: "I am very excited to be working with Professor Eisner in editing The Journal of Developmental and Life-Course Criminology. We will aim to bring the same energy and intellectual rigour of the past Editors, Professors McGee and Mazerolle, which have made this journal a desirable outlet for influential research around the world."
