The European Journal on Criminal Policy and Research (EJCPR) will be publishing a special edition in 2014 on 'trafficking cultural objects' and is now inviting articles on any aspect of crime relating to this.  It is also looking for anyone with expertise in this field who would be prepared to act as a peer reviewer for the special issue.  

The journal is a peer-reviewed international criminology journal with a particular interest in transnational organised crime.  Each year it publishes a thematic special issue on innovative topics in the field of criminology and criminal justice.  The special issue on trafficking cultural objects will be guest-edited by the Trafficking Culture team at the University of Glasgow, and they are aiming to produce an issue with a collection of cross-disciplinary papers (including contributions from lawyers, archaeologists, art world and heritage professionals, anthropologists and criminologists) though within the parameters of a criminal policy and research journal.  

They are looking for original evidence-based research and/or analytical manuscripts on any aspect of crime in relation to trafficking in cultural objects.  The deadline for submission is 28 June 2013.  Manuscripts should not be longer than 7000 words, including figures, tables and references and should follow the Instructions for Authors guidelines on the EJCPR website. For any formal or informal enquiries about the process, contact the Guest Editor Prof Simon Mackenzie on simon.mackenzie@glasgow.ac.uk
