The journal publishes material in the following types of submission:
Science & Justice is published six times a year and will be of primary interest to forensic scientists, forensic practitioners and crime scene investigators, legal professionals and their colleagues in related fields. It is chiefly concerned with the publication of formal scientific papers, in keeping with its international learned status, but will not accept any article that does not comply with strict ethical and legal standards. Evidence of consent and compliance, along with reference to protocol approval from an institutional ethical review committee should accompany your submission, particularly for case studies and research involving human or animal experimentation, or any study involving human data, non-exclusively including patient data.
Submissions are invited from all relevant areas of criminal justice, criminal law and forensic science disciplines including, but not limited to, crime scene and vehicle collision investigation, forensic archaeology and anthropology, forensic biology, forensic genetics and pathology, forensic chemistry and toxicology, criminalistics and physical sciences, digital forensics, environmental forensics and wildlife crime. Authors should consider the journal's diverse, international readership, and wherever possible, should contextualise their work and its application for the benefit of practitioners, academics, researchers and criminal justice systems across the globe.
