We are organizing a Special Issue on youth psychology and crime in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
The Special Issue focuses on psychological constructs and adolescent antisocial behavior broadly conceptualized. Contributors from criminology, criminal justice, psychology, psychiatry, sociology, genetics, public health, and allied fields are welcome. The scholarly goal is to advance understanding of the psychological mechanisms associated with crime and antisocial conduct among youth.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the impacts of youth psychology and crime/antisocial behavior. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
