For the last three years, Willan Publishing sponsored the £250 Willan Publishing Prize for Criminological Research, awarded to the student who performs best on the ESRC-accredited MSc Criminology and Criminal Justice (Research Methods) with an overall distinction. With the takeover of Willan Publishing by Routledge, the Centre for Criminology is pleased to announce that Routledge has agreed to continue the sponsoring of a prize for the MSc (Research Methods). The Routledge Criminology Prize, as it is now known, is for a value of £250.
