These new criminology and criminal justice studies were published recently by journals I monitor.

1. The Effect of Parental Abuse and Negative School Experiences on Female Adolescent’s Substance Use: Focusing on the Mediating Effect of Depression, published in Crime & Delinquency.

2. Explaining the Victim-Offender Overlap of Cyberbullying Using Low Self-Control and Parental Bonds, published in Crime & Delinquency.

3. Understanding Domestic Violence Among Older Women in Ukraine: A Secondary Analysis Using Gender-Based Violence Screening Data, published in Journal of Interpersonal Violence.

4. Victimization in Prison. A Study of Victimization and Prison Climate Dimensions in Belgian Prisons, published in Victims & Offenders.

5. Crime media as cinematic “freak show”: Ableism and speciesism in retelling Dahmer, published in Crime, Media, Culture: An International Journal.

I might cover some of these studies further in Understanding Crime. If one sounds interesting or important, let me know in the comments. Right now, I’m considering number 5.
