The Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine provides a forum for the rapid publication of topical articles on all clinical aspects of forensic medicine and closely related specialities. The Journal carries definitive reviews, original communications, hypotheses, learning points of important issues, offering critical analysis and scientific appraisal. All submissions are peer-reviewed by at least two independent reviewers, and the Journal is listed in MEDLINE/Index Medicus.
The recent increase in the volume of articles submitted in 2019/20 means the Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine has the second highest submission rate in the Elsevier family of forensic journals after Forensic Science International. We are proud that submissions are from a breadth of geographical areas, and although both citations and downloads are increasing the Editor has decreased the time taken to make decisions and get work published online.
