Criminal Law and Philosophy fills a gap in the scholarly literature by providing a platform for articles that take a philosophical perspective on any issue in the broad field of crime and punishment. It gives readers access to the latest thinking by the field’s best scholars.
Topics addressed include crime and criminalization; the content, principles, and structure of substantive criminal law; criminal justice and the criminal process; and punishment and sentencing.
Contributions from a range of philosophical schools and approaches are encouraged, in particular from both analytically oriented philosophers and from those who draw more from contemporary continental philosophy. The journal also publishes articles with an historical focus on earlier philosophical discussions of crime and punishment as well as articles with a more contemporary focus.

Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
