THERE are many reasons why research on probation is needed. There is no precise and systematic information about the different treatment needs of probationers, about variations in the treatment which is given, or about the relation between different offenders and the kind of probation treatment that is best for them. Further information is needed about the probability of reconviction of different offenders, and the possible use of other criteria for judging the success of treatment.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
