1 DEPARTMENT OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE College of Health and Human Sciences Georgia State University ANNUAL REPORT January 1 - December 31, 2010 A. Overview of the Criminal Justice Department 1. Mission and Structure The Department of Criminal Justice generates and disseminates knowledge and information that is theoretically driven and policy relevant for the fields of criminal justice and criminology. Our faculty accomplishes this by: (1) engaging in research and scholarly activities to address issues of crime and justice affecting diverse populations in urban settings; (2) producing students who are critical and ethical thinkers, knowledgeable about the issues of crime and justice, and prepared for leadership positions in public and private sector agencies that address crime and justice problems; (3) collaborating with public and private agencies through education, training, and research ventures that enhance our understanding of, and response to, issues associated with crime and the administration of justice. We maintain a focus on issues related to communities and crime/violence reflected in the research that our faculty conduct, as well as in the types of electives that we offer to students that distinguishes our program from others. We meet the demands of students by providing coursework that is theoretically driven but responsive to their needs. Readings, lectures, and research assignments are supplemented with field trips and with guest speakers who are recognized professionals in the field. These efforts are enhanced by a demanding, yet rewarding, internship program. The Department offers Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in criminal justice and a doctoral (Ph.D.) program in criminal justice and criminology. We welcomed our first cohort of doctoral students in Fall The Department's research activities further exemplify the commitment to integrating theory and practice of our interdisciplinary field. Some of that research addresses specific needs of criminal justice agencies, while some is more theoretical in nature. Further proof of the Department's commitment to scholarship can be found in two respected peer-reviewed journals published in the Department: Criminal Justice Review and the International Criminal Justice Review. In 2009, the Department approved the creation of the Center for Crime and Violence Prevention Policy. As a step towards developing this center, the Crime and Violence Prevention Policy Initiative has been created as joint effort with the Department of Economics. Another 1

2 dimension of the Department's research activity is the Statistical Analysis Bureau (SAB) which analyzes Georgia criminal justice data. The Department also houses the Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange Program (GILEE) for law enforcement executive development in Georgia and several other countries, and the International Law Enforcement Enterprise (ILEE); several faculty members regularly engage in international research and assistance projects. The Department maintains close professional ties with the criminal justice community through a host of agency-based internship placements, through various public committees and projects, and at various public events. As part of broader College restructuring, in October 2010, it was decided that the Department of Criminal Justice would be moved to the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies effective July 1, Transition planning and activities have been ongoing since that decision was made. 2.

The CJR is a scholarly journal dedicated to presenting a broad perspective on criminal justice issues. It focuses on any aspect of crime and the justice system and can feature local, state, or national concerns. Both qualitative and quantitative pieces are encouraged, providing that they adhere to standards of quality scholarship. As a peer-reviewed journal, we encourage the submission of articles, research notes, and commentaries that focus on crime and broadly defined justice-related topics marked the third year of the James L. Maddex, Jr. Paper of the Year Award, an honor that was bestowed upon Drs. Chad Trulson, Matt DeLisi, Jonathan Caudill, Scott Belshaw, and James Marquart for their article entitled, "Delinquent Careers Behind Bars," that appeared in the second issue of volume 35. During this reporting period, the CJR processed a total of 100 manuscripts; 16 of which were previous years submissions and 84 of which were new submissions. Comparing the numbers from 2009 to 2010, we experienced an 11% decrease in the total number of manuscripts processed and 4% increase in the number of new manuscript submissions. A total of 4 of the 16 carry over manuscripts were published in the 2011 volumes, 10 were rejected, and 2 were given a decision of major revisions. This translates into an acceptance rate of 31.3% for these 16 carry over submissions. Of the 84 new submissions in 2010, 16 were accepted for publication, 36 rejected, 22 were given the decision of major revisions and 10 were pending decisions at the end of the calendar year. This translates into an acceptance rate of 20% for the manuscripts submitted and processed during the 2010 calendar year. 16

17 Of the 90 manuscripts that were processed by CJR staff in 2010 to the point of a final decision, 20 achieved an acceptance status (22%) and 36 were designated a rejection status (40%).

This represents nearly a 6% increase in processing time over the 49 day average from Of the 20 manuscripts that were eventually accepted for publication in 2010, the average processing time to a final decision was 152 days. This above detailed activity resulted in the publication of 4 issues of the 2010 volume 35 of the CJR: issue one containing 5 articles, 1 commentary piece, and 11 book reviews; issue two containing 5 articles, 1 summary of recent legal developments, and 10 book reviews; issue three containing 4 articles, 1 summary of recent legal developments, and 10 book reviews; and issue four containing 7 articles, 1 summary of recent legal developments, and 10 book reviews.

Articles may focus on a single country or compare issues affecting two or more countries.
