Editorial

Dear colleagues,
Several questions such as how and in which frequency arise from a publishing process of a scientific journal. We worry whether we can create a certain amount of curiosity among our colleagues by publishing the Bulletin of Legal Medicine.
A scientific journal is an important tool to share scientific knowledge when it is published periodically. The dynamic and cummulative nature of scientific knowledge lead scientists to read these periodics. However, the research articles should have an effect to create curiosity and a willingness for further researches.
We can not expect a scientific media without curiosity. Thus, we hope to publish such researches that may improve our scientific knowledge in consistence with twentyfirst century, and draw your attention.
We know that science does not present an absolute truth. Nevertheless, the scientific knowledge that is cummulated in these journals w ill be the result of shared hypothesis to be discussed and met in a concensus, and all together we hope that they will have an effect for improvement of this field.
