Because of this diversity of subspecialties available within the field, forensic scientists can be involved in solving a crime at almost any stage in the criminal justice process. Forensic experts use microscopic examining techniques, mathematical principles, engineering, geology, scientific principles, digital evidence specialists, and reference literature to analyze evidence as to identify both class and individual characteristics.

Forensic Science and Crime Research mainly focus on the mechanisms by which forensic science is applied to the investigation of volume crime and its contribution to the effective and efficient detection of crime. The journal accepts Original research papers, Reviews, Perspectives, Rapid Communication, Short Communications, Mini reviews and Commentaries in the field of forensic science and crime research.
