AN EDITORIAL PROSPECTUS

C riminal Justice and Behavior enters its fourteenth year of
     publication with a new editor. Stan Brodsky served as its
founding editor and saw it through eight years to a place of
prominence among academic journals. We continued our good
fortune by having Don Gottfredson serve as editor for the next
five years, during which time he broadened the scope of CJ&Bto
include criminological perspectives. One could hardly go wrong
by simply following Drs. Brodsky's and Gottfredson's examples,
and in fact we will continue to publish the highest-quality
manuscripts dealing with research, theory, and application of
behavioral science to the criminal-justice system. Manuscripts
may include empirical studies, reviews of literature, and critique
that may provoke rethinking of an issue.
  We hope to publish special issues concerning a seminal topic.
Currently, such an issue is being organized regarding substance
abuse, and another is in the planning stages. It involves a review
of various classification systems used in corrections. Also, we
hope to experiment with the germinal paper-critique-rebuttal
format used by Brain and Behavioral Sciences, and being adapted
by the Journal of Social Issues. This format involves a major
theoretical paper, invited critiques by leading thinkers in the
paper's content area, and a rebuttal by the author of the major
paper.
  Third, we hope to publish more book reviews. Finally, I have
begun to review papers using one editorial board member and one
outside reviewer whenever possible. If you have suggestions for
special issues, a major paper, or wish to be involved in book or
manuscript reviewing, let us know.
  Remember, science is a dynamic activity involving our creative
energies, just as high-quality practice is the artful application of
scientific findings. Our goals are mutual: to foster scientific
understanding of the criminal justice system and the development
of humane and effective practices for its clients.
