Title

Locating crime in the field of sustainability: a bibliometric mapping on "sustainability and crime" from 1995 – 2022


Abstract

. Emerging as a field of study and paradigm shifts parallel to the societal changes are inherited consequences of social sciences. Criminology, as a field of study, originated from sociology and developed as a particular field of study, later initiating sub-disciplines within the subject. Moreover, moving back and forth in the criminological evolution, multidisciplinary research connected the crimes with indirectly related fields and generated more total outputs to emphasize the ultimate goal of criminology, "crime control and prevention". Identifying crimes within the area of sustainability is vairy. Discussions of crime prevention as improving quality of life, locating different criminal activities within Sustainable Development Goals (SDG.s), and using SDG.s for crime prevention are among the ample dialogues. This study reviews the literature on sustainability and crime with VOSviewer, a bibliometric visualizing software.
