Latest news from Trove
Two new law journals contributing their material to Trove. The International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy is a peer reviewed journal that publishes research about the challenges confronting criminal justice systems around the world. The Victoria University Law and Justice journal is published annually, and includes articles from their former journal DICTUM. Both journals are open access journals; they provide unrestricted online access to peer reviewed research.
