The Global Practice of Forensic Science
Forensic Science in Focus
The forensic sciences represent diverse, dynamic fields that seek to utilize the very best techniques available to address legal issues. Fueled by advances in technology, research and methodology, as well as new case applications, the forensic sciences continue to evolve. Forensic scientists strive to improve their analyses and interpretations of evidence and to remain cognizant of the latest advancements. This series results from a collaborative effort between the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and Wiley-Blackwell to publish a select number of books that relate closely to the activities and objectives of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. The book series reflects the goals of the AAFS to encourage quality scholarship and publication in the forensic sciences. Proposals for publication in the series are reviewed by a committee established for that purpose by the AAFS and also reviewed by Wiley-Blackwell.
The American Academy of Forensic Sciences was founded in 1948 and represents a multidisciplinary professional organization that provides leadership to advance science and its application to the legal system. The eleven sections of the AAFS consist of Criminalistics, Digital and Multimedia Sciences, Engineering Sciences, General, Pathology/Biology, Questioned Documents, Jurisprudence, Anthropology, Toxicology, Odontology and Psychiatry and Behavioral Science. There are over 6000 members of the AAFS, originating from all 50 States of the United States and many countries beyond. This series reflects global AAFS membership interest in new research, scholarship and publication in the forensic sciences.
