Standing Up for Forensic Science

If [forensic scientists] do not stand up for science, who will? We have the knowledge, the understanding, and the ability to explain our work, to condense it into relatable terms, and to counter notions with facts.

JFS Noteworthy Articles

What is the JFS Noteworthy Articles initiative?

JFS Noteworthy Articles is a collection of JFS articles chosen to feature some of the most impactful scientific articles representing the breadth and multidisciplinary nature of forensic science. JFS Editors select the articles annually, which are in turn featured as a special collection made openly available and free to read for a limited period of time. Selection of an article for the collection highlights the published work of author(s) or a research team.
