CrimRxiv Consortium joined by Ghent University, the 20th Founding Member

The CrimRxiv Consortium, a network of open criminology’s leading institutions, has announced its 20th Founding Member: Ghent University’s Department of Criminology, one of the largest such-departments in Europe and part of a global top-100 university.

“Ghent is at the forefront of open criminology: their people are active in it; their institutional repository is full,” said the founder of CrimRxiv and its associate director for sustainability, Scott Jacques, a professor of criminology at Georgia State University.

Ghent University is the first Belgian group to join the Consortium, launched fall 2023. They are the 20th Founding Member overall, joining groups from Canada, England, Germany, New Zealand, and United States.

“Our department proudly stands as a Founding Member,” said Christophe Vandeviver, a research professor in criminology at Ghent University. “We’re dedicated to creating a more inclusive discipline, where the exchange of ideas and findings can flourish unhindered; not only for researchers, but everyone.”

The Consortium’s purpose is to make the world better by making criminology open access: free to use and adapt. “Open science is a philosophy that aligns with our values of transparency, collaboration, and the democratization of knowledge,” added Vandeviver. “We’re making criminology more inclusive to accelerate discovery and change.”

To increase the Consortium’s visibility and impact, each Member has its own “Hub” on CrimRxiv, which aggregates and centralizes their open access publications. Ghent University’s Hub highlights their faculty’s research. Visit it now to browse their latest work.

My experience with CY BER GE NIE HACK PRO after hiring them was a pleasant one hence why I am giving them 5STARS. I was lost due to squandering my funds and borrowing from associates and family members just to make sure I made it big in the crypto market. Unfortunately, the scheme I linked up to was a corny Ponzi scheme artist, and within a few weeks, they stole all the money I could access. If not for the quick intervention of CY-BER GENIE HAACK PRO, I would have lost all the money sent to them. Cry no more, and reach CY-BER GENIE HACK PRO on:
