Abstract

This article introduces the special issue on systematic reviews in criminology. It explains what a systematic review is, and how it is superior to the more usual narrative reviews. It also defines a meta-analysis. This article then summarizes the eight systematic reviews and two reviews of systematic reviews that are published in this special issue, advancing knowledge about epidemiology, risk factors, and the effectiveness of interventions for offending and violence.
