Nordic Journal of Criminology Best Article Prize

About the prize

NJC Best Article Prize is awarded annually for the best article published in the previous year's volume of Nordic Journal of Criminology. The prize recognises excellent research and scholarship that engages with current and emerging issues in Nordic criminology. Following the publication of the final issue of the year, the editor prepares a short-list of nominations. Members of the Nordic Journal of Criminology Editorial Board and the Board of the Nordic Research Council for Criminology (NSfK) have the right to vote for one of the articles on the short-list. The prize is awarded to the article with most votes. The prize winner is invited to present the award winning article at the NSfK Research Seminar, held in May each year.
