Dear Forensic Scientists,

We are here with the third issue of the Bulletin of Forensic Medicine in 2020. The year 2020 is quite challenging for humanity, especially the pandemic. With this issue you are reading, we are leaving 25 years behind. For the first time in our journal history, we published the special issue of COVID 19 under the editorship of Ümit Ünüvar. When the corona epidemic started in April 2020, we made a call in the media to have a medical autopsy involving immuno molecular examination of the cases found. If our call had been reciprocated, today, the world would be talking about the series of autopsies in our country, and we would be able to make a significant scientific contribution to the treatment and vaccine discovery process of the disease. We welcome autopsies and similar studies, which are very limited in this field of study in our country, to our international Journal.

In this issue of our Journal, we are happy to share with you 12 articles from various disciplines from forensic science. Our Journal is published in Turkish this year as well as in English. While our Journal website is accessed from many countries, we are also pleased to see the citation of the articles by referring to them. With the increase in the number of articles coming to our Journal and from various disciplines, we are taking confident steps towards becoming the scientific platform of forensic medicine and forensic sciences.

Life continues to show us each day how important it is to make the quality of science that can open new horizons in literature and art visible and how significant merit is in the field of forensic sciences.

With the awareness that science is the only way in building the forensic sciences of the future, and with the hope to raise the scientific quality of our Journal even higher together, I wish that it will continue to be a common platform where the most up-to-date studies in the field of Forensic Medicine and Forensic Sciences are shared.
