Oñati Socio-Legal Series 10(2) - El género de los sistemas penales juveniles: Debates necesarios

Oñati Socio-legal Series

Dear readers,


Now that we are all navigating this sudden downturn brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, which is directly afflicting so many people  and entire countries, at the IISL we are taking this opportunity to thank all the warmth and sympathy that we have received from so many of you - these are messages that we are all so grateful for, which show that the IISL and its many friends are a close-knit community all around the world.

We truly hope that each and every one of you are in good health, as well as your loved ones; and, second, that you are all being able to continue working, researching, and teaching even if the circumstances are less than favourable.

The IISL team has been working at home for nearly three weeks now (you can read more about our recent adjustments here). Personally, as manager of the IISL's publications, I'm happy to report that the publishing programme for this year is still being fulfilled, and proof of it is this second issue of Oñati Socio-Legal Series vol. 10, entitled El género de los sistemas penales juveniles: Debates necesarios. It is a special issue edited by Laura López-Gallego, Cecilia Montes-Maldonado, and Encarna Bodelón-González, and is a result of the presentations and interactions that took place in a 2018 interdisciplinary workshop. It includes articles in Spanish, English, and Portuguese, and they all make up a rich and multifaceted mosaic of up-to-date reflections about application of criminal law to adolescents, especially female. As usual, since our work depends largely on diffusion of its results, we encourage you to read and share these papers.

We also want to share with you some excellent, recent news: in addition to the inclusion of Oñati Socio-Legal Series in the Web of Science's ESCI, we have just been informed that our application for indexation in Elsevier's Scopus has been approved and, in due course, our journal articles will be fully incorporated in the Scopus database. With this new accolade, we have fulfilled our twofold goal for the 2019-2020 term, which was becoming part of the two major databases in social sciences, and in scientific publications in general, currently available.

The IISL Publications continue to make its invitation to participate extensive to all socio-legal academics, and we will be very happy to receive your articles, as well as to respond to your queries via email.

Thank you.

Best wishes,


Oñati Socio-Legal Series
