The International Journal of Cyber Criminology (IJCC) is an interdisciplinary journal published biannually and devoted to the study of cyber crime, cyber criminal behavior, cyber victims, cyber laws and cyber policy. Ten years back in 2007, IJCC was launched by its founder Publisher and Editor-in-Chief K. Jaishankar with its website and with its launch a new sub-academic discipline of Criminology, Cyber Criminology is born. IJCC is an unique Diamond open access international journal, where the authors or the readers need not pay and open to all and it is freely accessible. IJCC is indexed in prestigious databases such as Scopus & Directory of Open Acces Journals (DOAJ) and IJCC’s Hirsch’s h-index Journal impact is 23. The International Journal of Cyber Criminology (IJCC) is commemorating its decade of existence in 2017 and we felt it would be pertinent to bring out a special article with a Research Agenda. In this article, we outline five areas that need to be addressed for the advancement of Cyber Criminology and scholarship on cyber crime and we hope this will be positively addressed by the contemporary and future cyber criminologists.
