Border Criminologies NGO Reports Series

Border Criminologies is pleased to announce the launch of the Border Criminologies NGO Reports Series. This series provides an opportunity to enhance the visibility and dissemination of reports written by NGOs on matters related to migration, border control and detention and will complement the existing Criminal Justice, Borders & Citizenship Research Paper Series (CJBC), which includes published academic work on the intersections between criminal justice and migration control.

The series will be published on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). SSRN is a highly reputed website devoted to the rapid dissemination of scholarly research in the social sciences and humanities makes all papers freely available. SSRN, founded in 1994, is ranked as the top open access repository in the world. Each submitted report will be included in up to 12 of SSRN's 1000+ subject matter journals across multiple networks. Distribution of the report can exceed 5,000-10,000 recipients, increasing exposure for it significantly. Indeed, our distributed CJBC research papers series has tripled the download counts of all the papers included in them. Since May 2014, our papers have been downloaded over 28.000 times.
