The International Review of Penal Law is the primary medium and core scientific product 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 general theory and penal philosophy, general penal law, special penal law, criminal procedure and international penal law. The two RIDP issues published every year each follow a clearly thought-out direction.

One issue a year is dedicated to the Association’s traditional scientific activities and links into an annual AIDP conference, a world conference or, every five years, the International Congress of Penal Law. The organised colloquia generates final reports and resolutions which will be compiled in a single issue. Throughout its five year cycle, the Association’s core scientific outputs will thus be systematically published as thematic, single-topic issues of the Revue.

The other issue will usually be dedicated to a single, topical scientific theme, chosen by the Scientific Committee, but disconnected from the organisation of the traditional conferences or the Congress. Facilitated by ISISC and the AIDP Network for Criminal Justice, small-scale expert colloquia will be organised in which leading experts will have the opportunity to present high-quality papers that will subsequently be published as an RIDP issue. In doing so, the Association will seek to contribute to the scientific quality of important penal debates even beyond its traditional conference or Congress activities. 

By organizing peer review and having leading academics and experts function as proper scientific editors, the core objective of ensuring scientific excellence will be realized. Considering English to be the lingua franca of science, the RIDP will in principle be published in English as from 2016 onwards.

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.
