The Criminology Open Association of Diamond Outlets (COADO) increases the utility of criminology journals that are free to read and publish in. This involves increasing their impact, improving their production quality, and lowering the costs of publishing them. The association is a collaboration between Criminology Open and member journals. Through the sharing of expertise, commitment to shared quality standards, and comarketing, COADO is advancing the free and timely dissemination of criminological knowledge. This is to the benefit of all stakeholders—researchers, students, policymakers and practitioners, journalists, and the general public.

Criminologie is dedicated to presenting research results and addresses both scientists and criminal-justice professionals. This theme-based journal deals with the current concerns and interests of criminologists. Themes are often multidisciplinary in nature and the publication calls upon researchers in various fields: criminologists, sociologists, psychologists, jurists, and more.
Criminological Encounters facilitates critical dialogues between scholars of criminology and our interlocutors in other social, academic, and professional domains about contemporary issues of crime, harm, in/justice, law, and society. The journal understands criminology as a discipline of encounters: encounters both in the sense of constructive dialogues as well as confrontations around given subjects. These confrontations are at times intellectual in nature, and at others are more explicitly political. The journal also considers criminology as not only the science for the study and understanding of crime, its causes, and consequences, but also as a discipline that is dedicated to research on conflicts and other social issues from a holistic perspective.
The International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy publishes critical research about challenges confronting criminal justice systems around the world. The journal is committed to democratising quality knowledge production and dissemination.
The International Journal of Cybersecurity Intelligence and Cybercrime highlights the origins, patterns, causes, motivations, and trends of cybersecurity and cybercrime in a contemporary era, while also providing new methods and approaches to existing issues within the field. The journal aims to offer theoretical and practical implications for a wide range of audiences, including academics and industry experts currently working in the field. The journal offers unique opportunities for bridging and initiating discussions between these audiences and seeks to enhance theory, method, and practice within the growing field of cybersecurity and cybercrime.
The Journal of Contemporary Crime, Harm, and Ethics publishes articles, commentary essays, and debates on the contemporary social realities of crime, social harm, and justice written from the perspectives of criminology, zemiology, anthropology, moral and political philosophy, critical theory, and the humanities more broadly.
The Journal of Criminal Justice & Law publish high quality articles, essays and book reviews on legal issues in criminal justice and law. Empirical studies, qualitative studies, and research emanating from doctrinal legal/criminal justice studies are all acceptable for review. The journal originated to meet the lack of outlets in criminal justice research dealing with legal issues. Subsequent to its creation in Fall 2016, the journal was adopted by the Law and Public Policy Section of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences in Fall 2017.
The Journal of Qualitative Criminal Justice and Criminology publishes multidisciplinary research on making laws, breaking them, and reacting to that. Its publications inform criminological concepts, theories, methods, policies, and practices. The journal focuses on research that analyzes non-numerical information to improve knowledge and understanding. It also publishes research that combines qualitative with quantitative methods, or uses quantitative methods to analyze qualitative criminology.
