Despite being a fundamental building block of everyday matter, the nucleon and its internal structure remain the subject of intense study even after four decades of ongoing research, with much still to be explored within the rich complexities of quantum chromodynamics.  Through a combination of experimental and theoretical developments over the last decade and a half it is now possible to investigate a wide variety of polarization-related effects in the nucleon and in the process of hadronization of scattered partons.  Several spin-momentum correlations in proton scattering have been measured to be as large as 10% or greater.   Recent results from and future prospects for proton-proton as well as muon-nucleon scattering will be presented.
