The Bulletin of Legal Medicine, being monitored by international scientific indexes, has gained an international journal quality, within a short time. We hope to give the good news of the new scientific indexes in near future. From the very next issue every paper will have DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number. DOI is a character string that uniquely identify a digital object that facilitate accession to it, and accepted papers that given DOI number will accessed as article in press.
We would like to underline that from the very first issue of 2015 the journal will be published with more original, case reports, and review papers. The journal’s editorial board, national and international advisory board have been updated and activated in a short period. The Bulletin of Legal Medicine experience innovation, starting from 2015 issues, without compromising its scientific way, and without departing from tradition. We are going to change the journal’s cover and page design in the new issue. We present the journal with both its scientific content and design.
We would like to thank distinguished forensic scientists who contribute our journal as authors and reviewers. Hope to meet you in higher quality issues with your increasing criticism and interest...
