Beyond 'What Works': Advancing Understanding of Crime through Systematic Reviews
Since their origins in the health sciences, systematic reviews and meta-analyses in criminology have largely been devoted to understanding the effectiveness of various interventions in preventing crimes and other problem behavior. Yet the strength of systematic reviews also makes them useful for synthesizing and improving knowledge on what we know about crime more generally.
This article collection is devoted to systematic reviews and meta-analyses that are intended to improve that understanding. It will include actual systematic reviews and meta-analyses as well as comments and thoughts on the matter. Additionally, it will include other empirical manuscripts that are relevant to the use of systematic reviews as a means to improve knowledge of the environmental aspects of crime, its patterns, organization, and explanation.
