Quebec’s Criminologie in the last ten years: theory, methodology, and author affiliation
F-Dufour I, Villeneuve M-P, Martel J. (2018). Quebec’s Criminologie in the last ten years: theory, methodology, and author affiliation. Criminologie. 51(1): 143-167.
This paper provides a global description of the articles published over the last ten years in the journal Criminologie, highlighting how the main criminological currents have been represented. Analysis of 188 articles published since 2008 shows that: 1) more publications are informed by mainstream criminology than by critical paradigms or by zemiology, 2) quantitative methodologies continue to be favored by authors working in mainstream criminology, and 3) this trend is stronger among doctoral candidates and faculty affiliated with the University of Montreal’s School of Criminology. Our analyses lead to the conclusion that there is a “Montreal School of Criminology effect” in the journal Criminologie.
