  • Trafficking in Persons
  • Firearms Violence
  • Mass Shootings
  • School Safety
  • Terrorism
  • Gangs
  • Persistently Violent Communities
  • Hate Crime

Potential peer reviewers should have strong research skills including specialized knowledge in the research process, research design, survey design, statistical analysis, and knowledge of the content areas indicated above.
