Canter, David V. and Youngs, Donna E. (2015) Reviewing crime psychology: introducing a new review journal. Crime Psychology Review, 1 (1). pp. 1-4. ISSN 2374-4006

The number and variety of journals and books that deal with many different psychological
aspects of crime, criminals and the legal process is growing at a rapid rate.
Taylor & Francis alone, who publish this new journal, now have at least 25 journals
covering the general area of crime and psychology. A simple search of the Taylor &
Francis website with the term Forensic Psychology produces 6890 hits. A Google
search of ‘Crime Psychology’ gives 26,900 hits. When limiting this search to books or
journals, there are still 5490 results. Yet these terms were hardly known a quarter of a
century ago.
