OFFICIAL SITE OF THE DIVISION OF EXPERIMENTAL CRIMINOLOGY
THE DIVISION OF EXPERIMENTAL CRIMINOLOGY
The Division of Experimental Criminology (DEC) is one of 16 divisions in the American Society of Criminology. The DEC seeks to promote and improve the use and development of experimental evidence and methods in the advancement of criminological theory and evidence-based crime policy.
ACADEMY OF EXPERIMENTAL CRIMINOLOGY
The Academy of Experimental Criminology is a learned society founded in 1998 in order to recognize scholars who have made influential researchers in the field of experimental criminology. It does so by electing fellows annually, and by honoring criminologists with its Joan McCord and Young Experimental Scholar Awards.
Since 2018, its president has been Heather Strang. Its founding President was Lawrence W. Sherman
AWARDS AND RECOGNITIONS
We recognize excellence in research and promotion of experimental criminology. The latest to join the Academy of Experimental Criminology Fellows is Dr. Allison Redlich.
Allison is an obvious choice for an AEC Fellow. She is not only an important experimental criminologist, she is also an asset and an ambassador for experimental criminology. Allison is currently President of the American Psychology-Law Society, which is a division of the American Psychological Association. In 2014, Allison ranked 22nd in the list of the top 100 most productive criminologists, and was the 2nd highest ranked woman. In short, people take note of Allison and her research, and this combined with her mentoring of students, advances our goal of increasing the footprint of experiments in criminology.
The Journal of Experimental Criminology (JEC) is the official journal of the DEC. Edited by Wesley Jennings, JEC publishes original experimental and quasi-experimental research that advances theories of crime and criminology. JEC also publishes systematic reviews that meet the standards of the Campbell or Cochrane Collaborations.
