There is a Google Group for Open Criminology. Its first “Conversation” led to the identification of resources for learning open criminology, now listed on this page. Any criminology input or output can be open: articles, educational resources, software, code, and datasets, for example. This page lists resources that are specific to open criminology, not the far broader open science or scholarship. That said, the latter informs the former and, thus, often referred to therein. The following list is not exhaustive. To suggest an addition, email it to the Google Group; we hope you will.
