CURT   R. BARTOL

S tan Brodsky (1980) wrote in his   outgoing editorial several years
     ago that

   the name Criminal Justice and Behavior [CJ&B] was chosen to indi-
   cate that the scope of the journal was well beyond that of just correc-
   tions and that the scholarly audience was to encompass all the behav-
   ioral sciences, not simply psychology-a goal that largely has been
   met. (pp. 365-366)

I intend to continue in this tradition with no major editorial changes
planned. The journal will be open to any well-executed research and
clearly written papers in forensic psychology, although we will con-
tinue to have a preference for high-quality research in correctional
psychology.  I hope to continue the legacy established by previous
editors Allen Hess  and David  S. Glenwick,  who  have masterfully
guided  CJ&B  into the premier journal that it is today.
   Allen Hess  (1996) wrestled  with the term forensic psychology,
wondering-as has Ronald Blackburn (1996) recently-if there is
such a thing as forensic psychology. Glibly, I say absolutely. In the
same  sense that psychology  recognizes industriallorganization psy-
chology, clinical psychology, health psychology, counseling psychol-
ogy, community  psychology  (and so forth), there is a forensic psychol-
ogy. To me, forensic psychology refers broadly to the production and
application of psychological  knowledge  to the civil and criminal
justice systems. It includes such areas as police psychology, correc-
tional psychology  (including institutional and community  correc-
tions), psychology and  law, victim services, and the delivery and
evaluation of intervention and treatment programs  for juvenile and
