The International Review of Penal Law is the primary publication medium and core scientific output of the International Association of Penal Law.

It contributes to the development of ideas, knowledge, and practices in the field of penal sciences. Combining international and comparative perspectives, the RIDP covers criminal law theory and philosophy, general principles of criminal law, special criminal law, criminal procedure, and international criminal law.

The RIDP is published twice a year. Typically, issues are linked to the Association’s core scientific activities, i.e. the AIDP conferences, Young Penalist conferences, world conferences or, every five years, the International Congress of Penal Law. Occasionally, issues will be dedicated to a single, topical scientific theme, validated by the Scientific Committee of the Association, comprising high-quality papers which have been either presented and discussed in small-scale expert colloquia or selected following an open call for papers. The RIDP is published in English only.

All contributions are subject to double-layered peer-review. The primary scientific and peer review responsibility for all issues lies with the designated Scientific Editor(s) of the journal issue. The additional scientific quality control is carried out by the Executive Committee of the Editorial Board, which may turn to the Committee of Reviewers for supplementary peer review.

Editorial Policy and Processes 


RIDP libri

For AIDP to maintain close relations with the national and regional groups, the newly established RIDP libri series will be used as a vehicle allowing books to be published under the AIDP flag. This multi-language series will allow mono-lingual books to be published in a multitude of languages, at least welcoming books in the six UN languages (Arab, Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish), German, Italian and Portuguese. While attributing full scientific and academic responsibility to the local scientific organiser the Association will, for branding purposes, provide templates and open-source style sheets for the books published within the series to be in conformity with the AIDP publication house-style. This goes hand in hand with AIDP’s renewed effort to promote national groups and serve as a platform bringing together practitioners, academics and civil servants in different countries and regions across the world. 



As the Association’s flexible, low-threshold publication vehicle, eRIDP (formerly referred to as the electronic Review of the IAPL)  is open for submissions of a scientific and non-scientific nature on a rolling basis and in multiple languages, and have a versatile publication range, with the inclusion of articles, chronicles, book reviews, conference questionnaires, speeches, position papers etcetera.

All articles sent to the eRIDP  ( are submitted, in view of their publication, to the Editorial Board.. 


Nouvelles Etudes Pénales

The Nouvelles Etudes Pénales were published either as the results of the Experts Committees, or the procedures of the academic meetings organised by the Association or the I.S.I.S.C. The results of the activities of the National Groups of the Association can bewere also published by the Nouvelles Etudes Pénales . Given the establishment of the RIDP libri, the Nouvelles Etudes Pénales (NEP) is discontinued as an AIDP publication while keeping its back catalogue accessible on the AIDP website.

The Nouvelles Etudes Pénales are published by Editions ERES (33, avenue Marcel-Dassault, 31500 TOULOUSE (France)). They are distributed freely among the members of the Association.
