About the Journal

This is the official journal of the North American Forensic Entomological Association (NAFEA). The Journal of Forensic Entomology (JFE) is an open access journal that publishes peer-reviewed articles that formulate the intersection of forensic science and entomology. The audience will mainly consist of other forensic entomology researchers as well as practitioners and other members of the criminal justice system.  JFE publishes original manuscript contributions focused on research studies, laboratory protocols, development datasets, with a special section dedicated to negative results or preliminary studies lacking adequate statistical power.  Submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed and evaluated on the basis of scholarship, novelty, helpfulness, and presentation. 

This journal follows a continuous publication model. Each year a single volume will be open for publication and papers will be added to the publication as they are submitted and accepted. This allows for authors to get their information to the public without having to wait for a minimum number of publications. For more information please contact the editors or Author Guidelines.
