Description

From their website, "The Prison Journal was begun by the Pennsylvania Prison Society, America’s oldest prison reform organization, which was founded in 1787. The Prison Journal has continued to be a central forum for studies, ideas, and discussions of adult and juvenile confinement, treatment interventions, and alternative sanctions.

Exploring broad themes of The Prison Journal advances theory, research, policy and practice. The journal also enhances the knowledge of correctional-systems practitioners and scholars by providing descriptive and evaluative accounts of innovative programmes and policies, state-of the-art surveys and reviews, and legal and historical analysis. Distinguished experts discuss emerging trends, innovations and developments in the rapidly changing world of corrections and alternative sentencing.
