The NIJ Journal presents research-based information that can help inform policy decisions and improve understanding of the criminal justice system.
Each issue of the NIJ Journal will now focus on a single theme, allowing the articles to dive into one specific topic from different scientific points of view. In this issue, our scientists have partnered to share some of the latest evidence and thinking about issues within institutional corrections.
