Biosocial criminology is the fastest growing line of research within the field of criminology. Even so, there remain significant challenges to this perspective, including biased journal editors, unqualified reviewers, discrimination in hiring, and a lack of courses taught on biosocial criminology. This study reviews these barriers and discusses what needs to be accomplished in the future in order for the biosocial criminological perspective to continue to grow at an exponential rate. We couch our discussion in terms of teaching and training students, depart- mental hiring, the peer review process, scholarly contributions, and professional development. We conclude by drawing attention to the significant contributions of biosocial criminology and its continued march to the top of the discipline.
