New Research Map projects

The Research Map plots details of relevant ongoing policing related research at Masters level and above. It is intended to increase opportunities for collaboration, and to enable forces to engage directly with researchers working on topics of interest to them. Summaries of relevant randomised control trials (ongoing and completed) are also available on the map.

Researchers are invited to share summaries of their ongoing research.  These summaries can be changed should research projects alter throughout the duration of the project.  When projects are completed, contributors are invited to share final research reports with the National Police Library and the project summaries are removed from the Research Map.  Details of completed projects remain accessible via our Completed Research page.
