Editorial Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 18, No. 2, April 2006 ( 2006) DOI: 10.1007/s11194-006-9014-3 Published online: 24 August 2006 Special Journal Section on the Effects of Ageing on Recidivism in Sex Offenders: Part I One of the most controversial issues confronting professionals involved in the evaluation of recidivism risk in sex offenders concerns whether or not and how much risk decreases with age. At Karl Hanson’s urging, we have organized a special journal section on the effects of age-at-release on recidivism in sex offenders. A number of manuscripts were solicited for inclusion in this special section, while others have been submitted by authors who heard about the project. All manuscripts have been subject to the usual peer-review process. Ray Blanchard, an Associate Editor at SAJRT, volunteered to act as the Action Editor on all of the manuscripts in the Special Section. Ray is the Editor who has had full editorial responsibility for the articles in the special section. Because of the vagaries of submission dates, editorial and review processing times, and revision and resubmission activity by authors, we have been unable to present all of these articles in one issue of the Journal. Three of the articles are presented here in Issue 18(2), and the remainder of the articles will be presented as Part II in a later issue of SAJRT.
