Editor Dr. David Olson, Loyola University Chicago

The Justice Research and Statistics Association is proud to announce the return of our peer-reviewed journal - Justice Research and Policy (JRP). The current issue, Volume 16 Number 1, is the first published in partnership with Sage Publications. This special issue on corrections is guest edited by Allen J. Beck of the Bureau of Justice Statistics and features articles emphasizing new research that may provide readers with a greater understanding of correctional practice, trends, and outcomes.

Justice Research and Policy (JRP) is a semiannual, peer-reviewed journal that publishes policy-oriented research on a wide range of topics, with a particular focus on criminal and juvenile justice policies and practices relevant to state and local government.

SAGE Publications is now the publisher of JRP, while JRSA directs the journal's content. All JRSA members receive a complimentary subscription to Justice Research and Policy. For information on joining JRSA, go to http://www.jrsa.org/membership/index.htm
