Refund Options and Process
At its meeting on 3/27, the ACJS Executive Board approved options for refunds in light of the annual meeting cancellation. The options are: (1) full refund, (2) apply registration fee to the 2021 meeting, or (3) donate to the Academy. The latter option was approved to help offset the high costs of a full cancellation.

As soon as the National Office is reopened for business and a refund process is put in place, we will send a communication explaining how to make your election. We appreciate your patience.

As before, please monitor email, Twitter, and Facebook for updates.

Submissions: Special Issue Justice Quarterly
The goal of this issue is to celebrate the work of Joan Petersilia on the 30-year anniversary of her challenge through publishing articles that honor this commitment to building true academic-policymaker/practitioner partnerships to improve the administration of justice. Consequently, submissions will focus on evaluation efforts that prioritized working as partners in the field with the practitioners and policymakers who make justice decisions. Submissions are due May 1, 2020 and should report results of new research. For more details or submission criteria, click here.
