The European  Journal of Criminology has a clear mandate to publish scholarship of
direct relevance to the European Union and its various member-states. To this end, past
issues have often included 'country surveys'; namely, articles summarising and discuss-
ing essential facts about crime and criminal justice trends in particular member-states of
the EU. With a view to enriching this key feature of the journal, Leonidas Cheliotis, of
Queen  Mary, University of London, UK, has been appointed to act as Country Survey
Editor of the journal. There are two immediate goals: first, to standardise surveys in
terms of the broad topics they address at the same time as ensuring that scope for sub-
stantive variation remains; and second, to further promote high-quality submissions.
General thematic guidelines will therefore be provided and submissions will be subject
to an enhanced review process. Country surveys so far have covered: Estonia, France,
Germany,  Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Russia,
Scotland, Spain, and Switzerland, whilst surveys on Finland and Lithuania are forthcom-
ing. At this point in time, the priority of the journal is to include surveys on EU member-
states that have not yet been covered. Country surveys should not exceed 9,000 words
(including references and footnotes). For further information and expressions of interest,
please email Leonidas Cheliotis at L.Cheliotis@qmul.ac.uk.
