This powerful research tool provides nearly 40,000 in-depth abstracts of studies published in more than 180 professional journals and also includes: abstracts of material from books, pamphlets, monographs, federal and state documents, dissertations, case studies, task force findings, and statistical analyses. There is also significant material that was never released in print and would be nearly impossible to acquire otherwise.

The collection spans a broad range of research topics, including: criminal law, criminal courts, juvenile law, juvenile courts, criminal justice reform, law enforcement and the police, crime and the adult offender, correction, probation, prisons and parole, prison reform, drug abuse, and related social issues.
Criminal justice researchers, law and criminology students, law enforcement training academies, and criminal lawyers rely on these abstracts to speed and focus their research. The abstracts provide comprehensive information and are fully indexed, with bibliographic citations.
MARC records are available for the units from 1978-1988.
