The NIJ Journal, published several times a year, features articles to help criminal justice policymakers and practitioners stay informed about new developments. The NIJ Journal presents research-based information that can help inform policy decisions and improve understanding of the criminal justice system.

NIJ has played a critical role in informing criminal justice policy and practice since its inception in 1968. This special edition of the NIJ Journal commemorates the Institute’s 50th anniversary. The articles highlight the history, evolution, and role of NIJ research over the past half-century across the full spectrum of criminal justice issues and look ahead to the next 50 years of rigorous research.
