The Council of Forensic Science Educators launched its official publication, The Journal of Forensic Science Education, in November 2019.


    • is open-access
    • is available for free to anyone who registers
    • has no fee for publication
    • gives readers the option of downloading manuscripts in the form of a pdf

We invite you to contribute to the journal. We are all one community and we believe that the development and evolution of the journal will be for the betterment of students, educators, and the vast scope of disciplines that comprise the forensic sciences. Manuscript submissions could be in the form of articles covering diverse topics including novel educational ideas or approaches, content for the classroom or laboratory, pedagogy, educational research, assessment, and programmatic accreditation), activities or laboratory experiments, commentary, communications (updates or extensions of previously published topics or short scholarly descriptions about applications that enhance teaching and learning), book reviews, and letters to the editor.

Author guidelines for the presentation of manuscripts are available on the JFSE website.

JFSE is now indexed in the the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
