How do I order a publication or product?

Available inventory may be ordered through the NCJRS Shopping Cart System. While browsing the NCJRS website you may order any publication or product that has a Shopping Cart icon (Add to Shopping Cart) associated with it. Simply click on the icon to drop the item into your cart and continue to browse the site.

You may also see the Order Photocopy icon (order photocopy) associated with some of the resources you find on the site. This means that the document is not available in original hard copy, but we may make a black and white photocopy of the original for you. To order a copy, click the Order Photocopy icon to drop the item into your shopping cart.

Once you are done shopping on the NCJRS site, go to the shopping cart page, click the Check Out button, and follow the directions.

Additional help on using the Shopping Cart System is available.

How do I check on the status of an order?

Track the status of your order by logging into your account.

Why aren't all publications on the site available to order?

Some publications do not have sufficient inventory to be included in the Shopping Cart System. Photocopies of publications that are out of stock may be available. This is indicated by the Order Photocopy icon (order photocopy). Click on the icon to order a black and white copy of the document.

Since NCJRS only distributes sponsoring agency publications, most publications that are found in the Abstracts Database are not available for ordering through the Shopping Cart System. If the publication cannot be photocopied then it may be obtained through inter-library loan. More detailed instructions on how to obtain documents in the Abstracts Database are available.

If you cannot find the item you are searching for or download an electronic version, contact us directly.

What are the shipping and handling rates?

Detailed shipping and handling rates for domestic and international orders are available on the shipping and handling page.

Can I chat with someone about the Shopping Cart System?

Yes. Live chat assistance is available Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2 p.m.-4 p.m. EST, except on holidays. Chat assistance can be accessed during the hours above on the check out page Shopping Cart System.
