  1. I am attempting to locate a peer reviewed article by:
    Douglas, J., Ressler, R., Burgess, A., & Hartman, C. (1986, October). Criminal Profiling from Crime Scene Analysis. Behavorial Sciences & the Law, 4(4)., 401-421. I am a student currently attending at Ashford University and in the process of preparing for my final in Psychology of Criminal Behavior. How can I obtain a copy of the article? Can you assist me or point me in the right direction?
