About the Journal
Aims and Scope
The Journal of Forensic Research and Analysis (JFRA) presents up-to-date coverage of forensic medical practices worldwide, covering all aspects of theory, research, and application of diverse disciplines about criminological research and analysis.
The Editorial Committee actively pursues to be a leading source of essential knowledge through promoting excellence in the examination, analysis and the convenient adaptation of that science to the medicolegal practice.
The journal encourages original research, expert review of Forensic Science at the forefront of judicial interpretation of biological studies, admissible evidence, and practice in medicolegal cases. Also, provides insight into the forensic analysis of the legal use of superior chemical, physical, analytical, and instrumental techniques. The JFRA is particularly interested in receiving manuscripts that report original investigations, observations, scholarly inquiries, case reports and high-quality, evidence-based reviews interesting to an international audience.
JFRA aims at an audience of Crime Investigation Practitioners, Biologists, Physical Scientists, Odontologists, Pathologists, Anthropologists, Psychiatrists, Serologists, and Toxicologists working in fields related to Forensic Science. Also, may be of interest to Scientists in Social and Legal Medicine, Jurisprudence, Forensic Nurses, Crime Lab Technicians and Scientists committed to the most updated and meaningful legal examination progress across the broad spectrum of Crime Analysis and Investigation.
Core areas of interest of JFRA include essential advancements that result in a better understanding of the evidentiary weight stemmed from the research and application of multiple disciplines to legal practice.
The journal pursues well-defined papers which showcase merit, originality, applicability, technology readiness level, focus and appeal to the readership. Criminalistics, Forensic Toxicologists, Odontologists, Forensic Pathologists, Physical Anthropologists, Crime Laboratory Analysts, Forensic Investigators, Forensic Scientists are contributors of JFRA articles.JFRA employs a highly laborious peer-review and editing procedure to assess manuscripts for integrity, importance, novelty, andscientific accuracy.
Call for submissions
The Journal of Forensic Research & Analysis publishes articles of original, interdisciplinary, forensic examination and comparison of biological evidence, and analytical practice. The Editor will endeavor to publish original high-level scientific articles, rapid communications reports that combine medicolegal aspects and knowledge that contribute to the disciplines that meet in Forensic Science. Similarly, JFRA is interested in insights into Forensic Biology, examination in criminal procedure, case solving, and articles whosetopic is clinically relevant in Forensic Medicine. Moreover,proposals for prospective reviews andletters to the editorare welcome.
