Journal of Contemporary Criminal Justice

Издатель:  Sage Publications, Inc.
01-16-2013 Journal of Contemporary Criminal Justice is a quarterly journal that examines current criminal justice issues in-depth to inform academics, professionals, and policy makers. It is interdisciplinary, with contributors from most social science fields, including anthropology, criminology, economics, history, legal studies, political science, psychology, public administration and policy, sociology, and social work. Each issue tackles a single topic, and most have a guest editor who is an expert on that topic. For example, the May 2011 issue is subtitled "Forensic Science and Criminal Justice." The guest editor for this issue is a professor in the Criminal Justice Department at California State University, Long Beach. According to his web page at the university, he researches "the intersection of law with the social and forensic sciences, most frequently with an emphasis in forensic psychology and psychiatry." The guest editors for each issue write a detailed introductory essay that presents an overview of the topic at hand and the research that follows. Firearms and violent crime, sentencing reforms, and victimization are some topics of recent issues. Full text of all issues, dating back to 1978, are available from the journal's homepage. The journal's unique theme-based coverage makes this a good choice for academic and special libraries. URL: (Metcalf, Susan)
