Since its inception in 2006, Feminist Criminology has established itself as the premier
outlet publishing outlet for scholarship on women and crime. There is no other journal
that covers this particular area of scholarship in the United States or in the world.
Feminist Criminology has  established the standard for critical debate, insightful
research, and discussion on feminist criminology worldwide. Thanks to the efforts of
past editors, and notably the outgoing editor, Jana Jasinski, it is currently ranked 27 out
of 52 in criminology, with an impact factor of .967.
   Feminist Criminology is the official journal of the Division on Women and Crime
(DWC)   of the American Society of Criminology. DWC leadership carefully concep-
tualized this new journal, and since 2006, the entire DWC has nurtured and pro-
moted  it, supplying manuscripts, reviewers, editors, and an editorial board. The
members  of the DWC  proactively cite the articles in Feminist Criminology in their
work. Very few other journals receive the kind of support that Feminist Criminology
receives. Feminist Criminology faithfully reflects the interests, priorities, and initia-
tives of the members of the American Society of Criminology Division on Women
and Crime. I believe that Feminist Criminology can also play a role in invigorating
the directions the Division may choose to take. This is our feminist project.
   Editing a journal, as I understand it, means being consistent, fair, and efficient in
the quotidian tasks, as well as being strategic about the longer term direction of the
journal. To these tasks I now turn.

Encouraging High-Quality Manuscripts and Reviews
Good  journals rely on high-quality manuscripts that are a good fit for the journal's
mission, and excellent reviewers. As consumers of research, we trust authors to submit
manuscripts for consideration to the appropriate journal, and we trust the process of
blind peer review to refine and select solid research findings and theoretical insights.
All editors know that the search for manuscripts and reviewers is an ongoing process.
We  will be actively recruiting manuscripts from conference presentations, granting
institutions, and other means. To reward excellent articles, we are reinstating the Best
Article of the Year Award. We will no longer be requiring a manuscript submission
fee as of January 1, 2015.
