Criminal Justice Periodical Index
A valuable resource is now available electronically for researchers in the area of criminal justice. The Criminal Justice Periodical Index (CJPI) can help you compile a list of articles in criminal justice related periodicals.
CJPI provides citations to and abstracts of articles related to criminal justice from over 180 periodicals. Full text is also available for about 25% of the titles. Most journals tend to concentrate on practical issues in crime prevention and deterrence, juvenile delinquency, police issues and court room procedures, but there are also a number of highly respected theoretical journals.
Titles are indexed as early as 1972, but coverage for the majority dates from the mid 1980's. The earliest that titles are available in full text is from 1991 onwards, though most begin in the mid 1990's. CJPI is updated weekly. (1)
