Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $84,979)
The purpose of this project is to provide the Campbell Collaboration with funds to complete three systematic reviews on what works to reduce crime and improve justice. The objective of this support is to expedite the completion and electronic publication of scientific syntheses of research on what works in crime prevention. This will be achieved through the provision of assistance to review teams to produce the reviews.
This grant supports a 12-month project to provide practical assistance for the expedited completion of two systematic reviews on what works to reduce crime or improve justice. Systematic reviews use a variety of strategies to limit bias in the identification, assembly, quality
appraisal, and meta-analysis of relevant evaluation studies on a specific topic. These reviews will be prepared and disseminated by the Campbell Crime and Justice Group (CCJG).
This is a continuation of funding for the production of systematic reviews by the Campbell Collaboration through the University of Pennsylvania.
