Criminology Journals: Different Tanks Same Lawn

Different Tanks Same Lawn

Apropos my previous post, feedback on Twitter suggests some confusion but also scope for more info.

Graphic here shows top ten journals in Criminology according to Thomson Reuters in 2009 (seems to be the latest info revealed by Google search)


Criminology, the American Society of Criminology journal, is reassuringly first - though I often find it a bit too 'quanty' - and UK readers will know the BJC and Punishment and Society.  The others though look a touch specialist and this is confirmed by the full list.

Reassuring to see, in addition to BJC and P&S (numbers represent position in alpha order):
