Call for Papers--Special Issue on Experimental Neurocriminology

Guest Editor: Adrian Raine, University of Pennsylvania 

The Journal of Experimental Criminology invites submissions for a forthcoming special issue on Experimental Neurocriminology, with publication anticipated in September 2020. The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2019.
Neurocriminology is a sub-field of criminology which focuses on brain-based processes to understand both the etiology of crime, and also its ultimate prevention and treatment. More broadly, it incorporates knowledge on human physiological processes for understanding a wide range of antisocial behaviors throughout the life-course, including delinquency, violence, aggression, psychopathy, white-collar crime, and conduct disorder. Of particular interest is the interaction between biological, psychological, and social processes in understanding crime.
Most neurocriminological research has been correlational in nature. In contrast, this special edition will highlight experimental and quasi-experimental neurocriminological research that aims to understand how causal physiological processes shape crime and violence, and how social and psychological process impact biological risk factors for crime. Neurocriminological studies that make use of randomized controlled trials, natural experiments, interrupted time series analysis involving before and after measurements, and other quasi-experimental methods are of particular interest. Examples of past, ongoing, and future studies include:
 neighborhood influences on neurobiological risk factors for crime
 transcranial direct current stimulation to enhance morality and reduce criminal intent
 the influence of an offender’s neurobiological profile on juror’s decisions
 mindfulness training to buffer the negative effects of imprisonment on neurocognition
 nutritional supplements to reduce antisocial / aggressive / psychopathic behavior
 the effects of environmental toxins on criminal behavior
 biological moderators of treatment outcomes
 how psychosocial treatment programs alter biological risk factors for crime
 the efficacy of medication in reducing antisocial, aggressive, and violent behavior
 enhancing sleep to reduce violence
The Journal of Experimental Criminology is a highly regarded journal that focuses on experimental and quasi-experimental research. It is currently ranked 3rd in Criminology and Penology (Journal Citation Reports) with a 2017 Impact Factor of 3.912. All submissions will be subjected to the standard peer-review process, and should be prepared in accordance with Journal of Experimental Criminology policies (http://www.springer.com/criminology/journal/11292?detailsPage=pltci_727222). Cover letters should be addressed to the guest editor. Further information on the issue can be obtained by contacting Professor Adrian Raine (araine@sas.upenn.edu).

    The Journal of Experimental Criminology focuses on high quality experimental and quasi-experimental research in the advancement of criminological theory and/or the development of evidence based crime and justice policy. The journal is also committed to the advancement of the science of systematic reviews and experimental methods in criminology and criminal justice. The journal seeks empirical papers on experimental and quasi-experimental studies, systematic reviews on substantive criminological and criminal justice issues, and methodological papers on experimentation and systematic review. The journal encourages submissions from scholars in the broad array of scientific disciplines that are concerned with criminology as well as crime and justice problems.
