Beyond the immediacy of crime and criminal acts, there is a concern among those involved in the justice system with analyzing and investigating all aspects of criminology and related subjects. The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) as the research, development, and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice is particularly concerned with these issues. On their website, visitors can learn about the NIJ's mission, research priorities and their strategic goals. Scholars and the general public will appreciate the rather large database that includes the institute's publications, annual reports, and speeches. Browsing through the publications area is quite easy, and visitors will find such recent reports as "DNA Analysis for "Minor" Crimes: A Major Benefit for Law Enforcement" and "Predicting a Criminal's Journey to Crime". Finally, visitors also can access the NIJ Journal's current issue, as well as browse every issue back to 1995.
