Advancing Corrections Journal

Advancing Corrections is a peer-reviewed publication that provides an interdisciplinary and international forum for the dissemination of new research, policies and practices related to advancing professional corrections worldwide. The aim is to provide an opportunity for both researchers and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines (criminal justice, psychology, sociology, political science, economics, public health, and social work) to publish papers that examine issues from a variety of perspectives in a unique, interdisciplinary forum.


Edition #6

Advancing Corrections Journal Edition #6

This 6th Edition is dedicated to the 'Innovation in Education: Voices from the Front Line'. The contributions in the journal are international -  from Scotland, Ireland, Canada, the UK, the US, Australia, New Zealand, Hungary and Africa. The first two papers are from 'incarcerated learners' - the ones who it is all about and who we should listen to more often. The next set of papers present the 'voices' of Educators; academics who are trained to write dispassionately but who in this case clearly lean into what they believe deeply, followed by the voices of a few 'Researchers' in the field of prison education. We turn to the Administrator's 'voice' for the next set of papers where they explore how technologies could be used for enhancing education, an impressive collaboration between prison and university, distance education programmes, and the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award as a spark for change for many young people entwined in the justice system. In the usual way we end each of our Advancing Corrections Editions, our last two papers profile two examples of 'Practice Innovation in Corrections' - on this occasion from Africa, illustrating that innovation in prison education can occur even when conditions may be less than optimal.

This 5th Edition is devoted to an exploration of evidence-informed ways to improve practice. The papers we are publishing come from around the world – Scotland, Australia, Singapore, Ireland, the United States, the Netherlands, the UK, Canada, Argentina and Norway. To begin the Edition, we feature a special contribution from professor Fergus McNeill. The next 4 Research Articles present data supporting change in practice in a number of particular ways, followed by two papers from Singapore that are more specialized but yet important. The Views and Reviews section of this Edition includes papers that provoke some important new thinking about issues we should be addressing in corrections. As usual, the final section of each Edition of Advancing Corrections tries to present one particular countries’ Practice Innovation in Corrections. In this issue, Marianne Vollan, the Director General of the Norwegian Correctional Service and a consistently inspiring correctional leader, gives us a cogent presentation of how her system tries to realize their underlying principle of ‘normality’.

Edition #4 (Available in English and Spanish)

Advancing Corrections Journal Edition #4 / Advancing Corrections Journal Edición 4

This 4th Edition of Advancing Corrections continues with our ambition to become the premier international, practitioner-oriented Journal in corrections. Once again, we are pleased to include contributions from around the world – the US, England, Ireland, Singapore, Belgium, Australia, Argentina and Chile.

The theme for this 4th Edition was also particularly ambitious. We welcomed Featured Articles that would highlight “integrated system-level innovation in how rehabilitative services are delivered – either in prison or in the community”. For our Views and Reviews section, we asked for “qualitative studies of how offenders actually experience the services we provide, and the challenges that staff experience in delivering them”. And in our Practice Innovation section we were pleased to receive contributions describing the significant efforts being made to reform corrections in Latin and South America despite, as one of the authors remarked, the precarious conditions in many of those countries.

 

En esta 4.ª edición de Advancing Corrections continuamos con nuestra ambición de convertirnos en la revista internacional líder en el ámbito correccional destinada a profesionales en la materia. Una vez más, nos complace incluir contribuciones de distintas partes del mundo: Estados Unidos, Inglaterra, Irlanda, Singapur, Bélgica, Australia, Argentina y Chile.

Edition #3 (Available in English and Spanish)

Advancing Corrections Journal Edition #3 / Advancing Corrections Journal Edición 3

This Edition focuses on the theme of ‘innovative approaches for service-delivery to offenders’. In a recent Strategic Planning session, the ICPA Board endorsed the promotion of evidence-informed practices as one of ICPA’s top three priorities, and so the theme is timely. Modern correctional agencies need to assess the merits of an increasing number of potential innovations (e.g., adopting new technology for services delivery to offenders), or changes in existing practice (e.g., assessment,case management, intervention, or other service-delivery frameworks). What will most likely improve performance is not always clear -- is there strong enough evidence to support the change in the context of other agency circumstances, would the new approach be feasible to implement, how much can it be expected to enhance performance, are there alternatives or options … etc.? There is an abundant and ever-growing amount of research evidence to support change in practice in corrections. Unfortunately, many attempts at change can end up as being true ‘on paper’ but no t on the ground (e.g., outlined only in policy), or even more often, fragmented or superficial without much meaningful impact. The papers in this Edition give a different perspective – the possibility of thoughtful, planned, integrated and meaningful change.

Esta edición se concentra en el tema de “enfoques innovadores en la prestación de servicios destinados a personas que infringen la ley”. En un encuentro reciente sobre Planificación Estratégica, la Junta Directiva de ICPA respaldó la promoción de prácticas basadas en la evidencia como una de las tres prioridades principales de la Asociación, por lo que el tema resulta oportuno. Los organismos correccionales modernos necesitan evaluar las ventajas de una cantidad creciente de innovaciones posibles (p. ej., adoptar nuevas tecnologías para la prestación de servicios destinados a personas que infringen la ley) o modificaciones de prácticas existentes (p. ej., evaluación, gestión de casos, intervención u otros marcos para la prestación de servicios). No siempre resulta claro lo que puede mejorar el desempeño; por ejemplo: ¿existen pruebas sólidas suficientes que respalden el cambio en el contexto de otras circunstancias del organismo?, ¿sería posible implementar el nuevo enfoque?, ¿cuánto se puede esperar que mejore el desempeño?, ¿existen alternativas u opciones? Contamos con una creciente y abundante cantidad de pruebas provenientes de investigaciones que respaldan el cambio en la práctica correccional. Desafortunadamente, muchos intentos de cambio pueden terminar como verdaderos “en los papeles”, pero no en la práctica (p. ej., como meras descripciones en las políticas), o incluso con más frecuencia, quedar fragmentados o en un plano superficial, sin mucho impacto con sentido. Los artículos de esta edición sugieren una perspectiva diferente: la posibilidad de un cambio pensado, planificado, integrado y con sentido.

Advancing Corrections Journal Edition #2 / Advancing Corrections Journal Edición 3

This issue includes 15 original papers with authors from Canada, America, the UK, the Netherlands, Australia and Africa. The response to the last Call for Papers was overwhelming and with the support of our international Editorial Board, we could choose ‘la crème de la crème’ for our readers. The mix of authors we have been able to attract is also encouragingly representative of the community of corrections professionals we want to engage – academics and/or researchers, consultants, senior corrections officials, including a few heads of service, front-line practitioners, public and private sector – all with something interesting to say, perhaps said a bit differently in each case, but said with honesty, thoughtfulness and some scholarly substance. We hope you enjoy this second issue of Advancing Corrections and we welcome your feedback.

Esta edición incluye 15 artículos originales de autores provenientes de Canadá, EE.UU., Gran Bretaña, Holanda, Australia y África. La respuesta a la última convocatoria para la presentación de artículos fue abrumadora. Con el apoyo de nuestra Junta Editorial internacional, pudimos seleccionar “la crème de la crème” para nuestros lectores. En muchos casos, “la crème” que presentamos en esta edición, ha sido mejorada significativamente a través del proceso de revisión. Los autores y el equipo de revisión aprenden unos de otros y de esta manera nuestros lectores también terminan beneficiándose. La combinación de autores que pudimos reunir resulta ser una representación muy alentadora de la comunidad profesional penitenciaria que pretendemos comprometer – académicos y/o investigadores, asesores, oficiales penitenciarios sénior, algunos directores de servicios, profesionales más destacados, del sector público o privado – todos con algo inter esante para decir. Quizás, en cada caso, lo relaten en forma diferente, pero todo está dicho con honestidad, reflexión y con un contenido
académico.
