The Annual Review of Criminal Justice Studies (ARCJS) is an open-access journal that publishes scholarly writings pertinent to the critical analyses of law, crime and justice systems and their entanglement with larger political economic processes.

ARCJS contributors explore how ideas and systems of crime, law and justice shape broader issues of social justice, especially those related to the experience of race, class, gender, sexuality, and age inequality in the U.S.

Ranging from the conception to the implementation to the transformation of law, crime and justice systems and ideas, ARCJS includes ethically reasoned critical analyses intent on contributing to the assessment of alternative solutions to problems associated with the identification, control and prevention of crime and delinquency.
