The Southwest Journal of Criminal Justice (SWJCJ) is a peer-reviewed publication. The primary mission of the SWJCJ is to provide a forum for the dissemination of theoretical, methodological, historical, and policy-related criminal justice research to national and international constituencies. The SWJCJ publishes papers from diverse perspectives and approaches to the study of crime, criminals, victims, and the criminal justice system. The journal is published by the Southwestern Association of Criminal Justice, a regional affiliate of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences.

The choice of an electronic format for the journal reflects the impact that both changing technologies and financial restrictions have had on the distribution of scholarly work. It is the secondary mission of the SWJCJ to provide a high-quality, low-cost alternative to the traditional, print-based journal.
