The Standing Group on Organised Crime (SGOC) is one of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) standing groups. It aims to promote research in transnational organised crime across different disciplines. 

Over recent months, the SGOC has continued in its efforts to promote excellence in research and has now published its online open access journal, The European Review of Organised Crime (EROC).

Submissions are now being sought for future issues including theoretical and empirical contributions presenting the latest research on organised crime from a variety of disciplines, such as criminology, criminal justice, political science, law, security studies, sociology, gender studies, economics, media studies, anthropology, and history. Submissions are also sought from practitioners who can share knowledge about organised crime by drawing upon their on-the-ground experience.
