HeinOnline is pleased to introduce Criminal Justice & Criminology, resource for researching criminal behavior, the criminal justice system, and the societal impact of crime.

  • More than 2 million pages and 1,300 titles have recently been added
  • Expanded focus beyond the work of the U.S. Department of Justice, focusing on how criminal justice systems have changed in American and English law over time
  • 110 criminal justice periodicals along with a large collection of Crime and Criminal books have been added.


HeinOnline’s Criminal Justice & Criminology offers an historical overview of these ever-changing disciplines and their various expressions in American and English law over time. Collecting Bureau of Justice statistics, memoirs of retired Scotland Yard investigators, congressional hearings on drug control policies, accounts of prison life in days long past and much more, this collection explores how criminal justice has changed in America and the effect criminology has had on those changes. It collects government documents as well as rare or hard-to-find pamphlets, memoirs, and books written by ordinary law enforcement officers and not-so-famous criminals. To help users navigate the content spanning these two wide-reaching disciplines, all titles in this collection have been subject coded into 16 subject areas. Log in now to check out the updated collection and new content.


Central to the reorganization of this database was the addition of more than 100 periodicals relating to criminal justice and criminology, as well as a large collection of Crime & Criminal books. Incorporating these titles—which total nearly 1.6 million pages—allows users to jump directly from important government documents to secondary analytical sources, providing a comprehensive foundation for criminal justice research.
