Description of the contract

The overall aim of the research and analysis plan is to carry out a review of the existing evidence on how the pathways of offending differ across different types of offenders with a focus on the onset,escalation, persistence and desistance in offending. The strategy for this research should focus on published, English language, UK and international research from 1990 onwards, however exceptions can be made for seminal studies published before this date. In particular, the review will include a synthesis of findings from UK and international longitudinal studies. A list of databases and other catalogues will need to be compiled from which studies will be identified. As well as electronic sources, print sources (such as relevant journals and grey literature) should also be included. It is suggested that contact should be made with noted researchers in this area to identify additional sources of published research. Search terms will need to be developed and tested by the contractor (in collaboration with the Project Manager where this is helpful). The search results achieved for each (and various combinations) of these terms will need to be examined for relevance to answering the research questions.
