About Journal


Forensic science is the application of science to criminal and civil laws. Forensic scientists collect, preserve, and analyze scientific evidence during the course of an investigation. Forensic Science is a multidisciplinary subject, drawing principally from chemistry, biology, physics, geology, psychology, social sciences etc.

The Journal of Forensic Science and Research is an initiative of Heighten Science to publish peer-reviewed scholarly manuscripts emphasizing skills, application and communication of competent and credible developments in the field of forensic science and research.

Reasons for Publishing

Forensic science and research has shown remarkable growth over the past 15 years. New advances in technology have placed forensics in an accelerating cycle of growth, as a wider range of societies than ever before comes to realize just how useful forensics can be for their own purposes.

In this scenario, The Journal of Forensic Science and Research purposefully puts effort to publish manuscripts with new insights and technologies combined with aspects related to rapid growth and transition of forensic science and research.

Aim of the Journal

This aims to highlight important trends and factors in the growth of forensic science such as the introduction of new technological capabilities and increased general awareness regarding the value and efficiency of forensic science.

The manuscripts published in the Journal of Forensic Science and Research disseminate complete and reliable source of information on diverse and vast range of forensic related discoveries.

Scope of the Journal

The Journal of Forensic Science and Research considers forensic science as a multidisciplinary and rigorous discipline which is at an important stage of its development. Hence, The Journal of Forensic Science and Research encourages the scientists, doctors and researchers to develop manuscripts and send to us for publication sighting versatile role of forensic science in criminal investigations, archeology, Anthropology etc. The scientists, doctors and researchers are invited to write and publish on the following, but not limited to, disciplines of forensic science and research:
