The practice at the different international criminal tribunals has shown that there is no real international criminal customary law but only extrapolations from international public law general principles of law and humanitarian law. The divide between the socalled common law and civil law systems and their differences in approach to solving legal problems make it necessary to establish an international forum for discussion and development of a common ground on which the work of the international courts can build. This is especially true with regard to the socalled General Part of the substantive criminal law like forms of participation actus reus and mens rea categories defences and excuses offence types sentencing enforcement etc. But also the procedural law still lacks sharp features in many aspects the ICCs Rules of Procedure and Evidence are still in need of interpretation. In addition it will be helpful to the Courts to understand the societal background and effects of the law. Thus there is also a need for criminological sociological and historical research on the issues of ICL. The International Criminal Law Review publishes indepth analytical research that deals with these issues. The analysis may coverthe substantive and procedural law on the international levelimportant cases from national jurisdictions which have a bearing on general issuescriminological and sociological andhistorical research.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
