Editorial

Dear Forensic Scientists,

Firstly, I would like to state that we decry recently increasing incidents of terrorism. We have to act with an approach that includes our relations with nature by both objective and subjective sensitivity of a scientist as working in the stressful branches of forensic science especially trauma and death. The Bulletin of Legal Medicine develops rapidly on the way of becoming not only national, but also an international scientific platform, in which your contributions are extremely valuable.

When we examine the website of our journal via visitors statistics, we are pleased to determine that our visitors from almost every country in the world access to articles as “PDF” format which we share free in thought of independent science. We would like to ask you to add the numbers of “DOI” in order to increase impact factor of our bulletin when representing articles in our bulletin as reference.

We become happy about increasing in the quality and quantity of articles arriving to us and learn that our bulletin is indexed in many national and international databases. As a scientific journal published on time, we need more supports, participations and contributions especially with research articles.

With knowledge that the scientific attitudes are only truth in construction of Forensic Science of future, we wish to increase quality of our bulletin together...

Sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Halis Dokgöz
