Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
The uniqueness of the family of RJ trials stems from the capacity of Sherman and his colleagues to launch The Jerry Lee Program of Randomized Controlled Trials at Cambridge, bringing together philanthropic support (e.g., from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, and the Smith Richardson Foundation) coupled with national competitive grant schemes, such as the Economic and Social Research Council (see ), the Australian Research Council (see ), and the US National Institute of Justice (see ). The establishment of the JOEX in 2005 created a new outlet for experimental results (and replications) like the publications from the RJ trials. Yet, what continues to challenge researchers are the difficulties encountered in securing funding for experimentation in the crime and justice arena.
