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

1. Contested, Discounted and Disproven Stories of Rape: The Social Pathways of Rape Reporting, published in The British Journal of Criminology.

2. Beyond the risk factors of sports-related match-fixing: Testing the applicability of situational action theory, published in European Journal of Criminology.

3. An Examination of Racial and Ethnic Disparity in Prison Misconduct Punishment, published in Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency.

4. Collective Self-Control as a Feature of Social Contexts: Theoretical Arguments and a Multilevel Empirical Test, published in Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency.

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 1.
