NIJ Journal

We have begun releasing articles from our upcoming special issue commemorating NIJ's 50th anniversary! Take a look.

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.

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. 

Current Issue: No. 280, Law Enforcement and Policing

In this issue, our scientists and staff share some of the latest developments in policing and law enforcement.
