The World Criminological Directory covers almost 500 institutes in some 90 countries, including academic institutions, governmental institutes, NGOs, private institutes, and international organizations. The information that is provided on the institutes includes contact details, web page links, names of directors and staff, activities and projects, sources of funding, and periodicals issued. The Directory is searchable through name of institute, activities, country and keywords. A number of countries- in particular developing countries- which do not have "criminological institutes", have nevertheless requested that some of their bodies, such as corrections services, forensic laboratories and training and rehabilitation services be included in the Directory. Hopefully, their inclusion will lead to the expansion of their criminological capacities. UNICRI is eager to assist in this endeavour. The World Criminological Directory has been published in six different editions between 1974 and 1995.
