Forensic Science in Focus is a co-branded book series that seeks 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. Each volume in the series presents information on the development of a particular discipline within the Forensic Science arena and includes key content components as determined by the planning group. Every effort is made to complement and reference key existing published literature. Interdisciplinary and international approaches are emphasized within each volume. This series reflects the global membership of the AAFS and its interest in new research, scholarship and publication in the Forensic Sciences.
