Annotation: This qualitative study identified the essential elements to consider for successful researcher-practitioner collaborations on violence against women (VAW) research in the criminal justice system.
Abstract: The benefits of (R-P) collaborations focused on VAW are many. Such projects support researchers and practitioners working together to create uniquely comprehensive projects that have the potential to change practices, policies, and services. Extant literature is limited in that it has (a) focused on the experiences of a very limited number of collaborations, (b) ignored collaborations conducted in the context of the criminal justice system, and (c) excluded as a focus the products that result from the collaborations and their dissemination. 23 references (Publisher abstract modified)
