New Corrections Sentencing Journal Redux

Announcing new SSRN journal: Corrections and Sentencing Law and Policy

UCLA law professor Sharon Dolovich and Washington University law professor Margo Schlanger are co-editors of a new Social Science Research Network journal, Corrections and Sentencing Law and Policy.

Corrections and Sentencing Law and Policy Abstracts will provide a forum for works-in-progress, abstracts, and completed articles dealing with the broad range of doctrinal, theoretical, and policy issues relating to the punishment, sentencing, and re-entry of convicted criminal offenders. Topics include (but are not limited to) prison and jail conditions and life; prisoners' rights; probation, parole, and re-entry; prison and jail administration; imprisonment and diversionary sentencing, and the death penalty.

The journal also invites submissions dealing with the implications of incarceration and other criminal punishments for families, communities, and society as a whole.Contributions from all disciplines are welcome, and scholars working in this area are encouraged to submit their work.
