New coverage of FSR at the website of the Vera Institute of Justice

I am pleased to be able to spotlight that the terrific Center on Sentencing & Corrections at the Vera Institute of Justice has created this new webpage featuring the work of the Federal Sentencing ReporterAlison Shames, the Associate Director of the Center on Sentencing and Corrections, provides this kind introduction to this new web locale:

Vera and the Federal Sentencing Reporter share an approach to policy change that relies on information, analytical examination, and innovation.  Rare among scholarly journals, the Federal Sentencing Reporter focuses — in its authorship and readership — on academics as well as practitioners.  In its pages, conversations take place among judges, lawyers, policy makers, and scholars.  The publication is an intellectual resource that people in the field turn to for solutions and that academics rely on to propose, learn about, and discuss new ideas.  Each issue offers in-depth analysis on a wide range of topics related to sentencing policies and practices.

The Federal Sentencing Reporter is published five times a year. For each issue, Vera posts the “Editor’s Observations” (a regular feature that highlights the themes of the issue), a select article, and the table of contents on its website.  Other articles, subscription services, and archives are available through University of California Press.
