Essentials of Research Methods for Criminal Justice / Edition 3
The Criminology and Justice Studies program promotes the theoretical, analytical and practical understanding of crime, victimization and the criminal justice system from a social scientific perspective. The program provides a foundation for the study of criminology and criminal justice based in critical thinking and application, theory and research methodology, understanding diversity and global perspectives, writing, and fundamentals of law and ethical practice. Students who major in Criminology and Justice Studies are equipped to enter the criminal justice and related workforce with a solid understanding of the system of criminal justice and the ability to critically engage in an examination of that system and the work within it. Graduates of the program are also well equipped to enter into graduate study in criminal justice and other fields. Coursework in criminal justice complements many other fields, including sociology, political science, psychology, social work, counseling, child development, health and any other field that addresses or is impacted by deviant or criminal behavior. Sociology majors with the option in Criminology and Criminal Justice will not be allowed to double-major with Criminology and Justice Studies.
Topics 1 and 2 are critical to the dialectic of scholarly knowledge in criminology and criminal justice. Somewhat unique to the field of criminal justice, however, is a heavier emphasis on 3 as a product of research. The phenomena of primary interest to criminologists include juvenile delinquency, adult criminality, and victimization, at both the individual and aggregate levels. The interests of criminal justice researchers appear more eclectic, only a few of which include police practices and effectiveness, the dynamics of criminal case processing, sentencing discrimination, inmate violence, and correctional pro gram effectiveness. The methods employed in criminological and criminal justice research are identical to those in the behavioral and social sciences in general.
Criminology: Books & E-Books
The second edition of Research Methods for Criminology and Criminal Justice is a core text for criminology and criminal justice research methods courses. This text offers a general foundation of knowledge that transcends particular topics or subject areas, allowing students to apply the methods and concepts discussed to a multitude of scenarios. Within the first five chapters, students learn a the philosophy behind scientific research, b the role of theory and hypotheses in the research process, c ethical issues in conducting research in our field, and d how research reports are structured. Thereafter, each new chapter will add information and examples that help students move toward a further understanding of research design and methodology that can be applied across the social and behavioral sciences to better understand social phenomena. Richard D. Lee Ellis is semi-retired after over thirty years as professor of sociology at Minot State University. Anthony Walsh is professor emeritus of criminal justice at Boise State University.
Criminology and Criminal Justice Research: Methods
Quantitative research methods are typically concerned with measuring criminological or criminal justice reality. To understand this process several terms must first be identified. Concepts are abstract tags placed on reality that are assigned numerical values, thus making them variables. Variables are then studied to examine patterns of relation, covariation, and cause and effect.
Sociologists examine the world, see a problem or interesting pattern, and set out to study it. They use research methods to design a study—perhaps a detailed, systematic, scientific method for conducting research and obtaining data, or perhaps an ethnographic study utilizing an interpretive framework. Planning the research design is a key step in any sociological study. When entering a particular social environment, a researcher must be careful.
Наконец он нашел его и снова выстрелил. Пуля ударила в закрывающуюся дверь. Пустое пространство зала аэропорта открылось перед Беккером подобно бескрайней пустыне. Ноги несли его с такой быстротой, на какую, казалось ему, он не был способен. Когда он влетел во вращающуюся дверь, прозвучал еще один выстрел.
Рядом раздался оглушающий визг тормозов такси, его лысая резина заскользила по полу. Машина завертелась в облаке выхлопных газов совсем рядом с мотоциклом Беккера. Теперь обе машины, потеряв управление, неслись к стене ангара.

Она поставила машину на зарезервированное за ней место и выключила двигатель. Миновав похожую на сад террасу и войдя в главное здание, она прошла проверку еще на двух внутренних контрольных пунктах и наконец оказалась в туннеле без окон, который вел в новое крыло.
