The types of reports and their content are designed to meet the broad range of interests in the field and the audiences who use them.

The full-text coverage includes criminal justice, juvenile delinquency, juvenile justice, corrections, penology, policing, forensic psychology and family and domestic violence.  Coverage varies by journal, with some coverage starting in 1921.
