Q. Where can I research for "role of a victim in sentencing a defendant please?
I would recommend the following databases:
- Criminal Justice Abstracts with Full Text
- Criminal Justice Periodicals
I would recommend using the advanced search in both of these databases. For search terms, I would recommend:
- victim AND defendant sentenc*
- victim AND sentenc*
I would recommend checking the box for full text. This will bring back exclusively records with the full text article attached. If you need scholarly or peer-reviewed articles, be sure to check the box for peer-reviewed as well. Be sure you enter the search terms as they are listed above. The * will bring back sentence, sentencing, etc.
Please let us know if you have any other questions!
