Forensic science has a number of popular outlets where interested people can learn more about what's going on within the field directly from the scientists at work. These resources include those offered by the FBI, industry magazines, as well as private research aggregators like ScienceDaily.com or journal services like Elsevier.

Finding Forensic Science Articles

Government, news, professional associations, industry magazines, and publishing websites provide access to forensic science articles online; some offer the content for free, while others charge a subscription or pay-per-view fee.

Forensic Magazine

Forensic Magazine is a fully digital magazine covering forensic science topics that range from laboratory methods to legal practice. The magazine often has reports from real forensic scientists on their day to day work. The issues are available online for free, including all of the back issues. Readers can also subscribe to a free daily newsletter from Forensic Magazine covering technological advances, news and trends in forensic science.

Forensic Science Communications

The FBI website keeps issues from 1999-2010 of its peer-reviewed journal Forensic Science Communications online that the public can access for free. The journal was intended as a means of communication between scientists in the forensic science fields. Inclusion in the Forensic Science Communications journal is not representative of endorsement by the FBI, the U.S. Department of Justice or the U.S. Government. The most recent issue available is from 2010, so this resource is not as up-to-date as the others.
