Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Journal of Criminology! The Journal aims to build critically and constructively on the 53-year legacy of the publication as it was previously known (the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology). It does so in order to reflect changes in the nature of the discipline and especially the ways in which criminologists connect, conduct research, and communicate more widely in a geographical sense as well as in an interdisciplinary sense. The Journal will continue to be the official journal of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology and thus retain a close scholarly connection to, and interest in, scholarship emanating from Australasia and Oceania. However, readers of the new Journal will notice that we have expanded our range of Associate Editors to include representation from African, Asian, European, and North American scholars, as well as refreshing our editorial board to reflect the change in focus.
