Issue 1: Spring 2020, was sponsored, hosted, and published at and by the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. (Consistent Location of all previous articles: https://wwwcp.umes.edu/ajcjs/). Beginning with the Fall 2023 Issue the journal shall be hosted and published at Texas Southern University and sponsored by Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs.[The entirety of the original Articles are available on the current journal space]. As before and still, the opinions expressed in the journal are those of the authors and are not necessarily representative of the association's views.
According to Dr. Biko Agozino, former Editor-In-Chief and the current Editor-in-Chief Declan Ihekwoaba Onwudiwe, Ph.D., the journal is here to fill a void in existing knowledge by exposing the discipline to knowledge about and from Africa and Africans worldwide that could enrich the discipline in a progressive direction. For too long has criminology continued as a discipline designed almost exclusively by others with little or no acknowledgment of the actual and potential contributions from African sources.
