EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION


Ambrose Bierce, that most irreverent and witty cynic, once wrote that
birth is the first and direst of all disasters. In thinking about the birth of
this new journal, it seems to us that we have had equal doses of disaster
and joy, but the journal is born, it is named, and it is our pleasure and
responsibility to introduce it.
   The purpose of Ciminal Justice and Behavior is to publish reports of
the ways in which behavioral sciences seek to understand and influence
agencies, clients, and processes related to criminal justice. Two kinds of
articles will be printed in the journal: original research studies dealing with
behavioral science investigations into criminal justice, and reports of
important program developments and other direct applications of behav-
ioral science knowledge.
   Criminal Justice and Behavior is the official publication of the
American Association of Correctional Psychologists. However, it is not
intended to be focused exclusively or primarily on corrections, nor is it
intended to be primarily psychological. Rather, the full range of justice
issues and problems and the breadth of behavioral and social science
knowledge are its scope. We begin with a commitment to being an
international journal and avoiding provincialism that can accompany a
national journal. A number of distinguished international experts have
agreed to serve as members of the International Advisory Board. The
editorial board itself is drawn from the United States and includes
individuals from applied as well as academic settings. A special effort has
been made to include demographically representative editors.
