Founded in 1976 at Rutgers - The State University of New Jersey by the late Sol Chaneles, PhD, and published continuously since its founding by The Haworth Press, Inc., the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation is an international forum for scientific information exchange centered on these focal issues: the rehabilitative treatment of offenders in correctional facilities and inpatient and outpatient settings, including forensic psychiatric hospitals and probation, parole, and community mental health agencies; the staffing, management, and organizational dynamics of correctional institutions, including the selection, evaluation, deployment, and skill-enhancement of corrections and public safety officers; psychological criminology, offender and victim characteristics and motivation, and the dynamics of criminal behavior; application of the knowledge base of the mental health sciences and the social service and human service professions to pertinent forensic issues. The journal's authors and editors - and the members of its editorial advisory board - represent a spectrum of specialties and subdisciplines in psychology, sociology, psychiatry, social work, criminology, penology, and the administration of justice. The Journal of Offender Rehabilitation welcomes submissions which report empirical, clinical, or conceptual research and especially welcomes conceptual analyses and comprehensive reviews that assess the state of the science in its focal areas.
