Assignment Excerpt (Straight From Your Syllabus)

Your "best bets" are to (1) use the criminal justice abstracts search engine from the library web page and (2) use corrections textbooks to find recent cites to research (and then find that research).

  • If you can find a very recent article (e.g., past 2-3 years), look at their reference page to find more articles. For older articles, you can look at whether someone has cited this article in recent research. - CITATION TRACKING TOPIC
  • You might also ask me or other professors if they are aware of sources
  • The Bureau of Justice Statistics has basic facts on many corrections topics
