A little about the FoSci SIG

Given the interdisciplinary nature and societal importance of forensic science, the FoSci SIG was set up with the primary purpose of enabling closer networking and better communication between all forensic science stakeholders for improved R&D.

New Forensic Research Repository

The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, in collaboration with HEA, Staffordshire University and Jorum, has created an online repository of undergraduate and post graduate research.
The repository takes the form of a searchable database hosted on Jorum's site. The database is open access and Higher Education Institutions can register with Jorum, at no cost, to upload appropriate theses to the database.
The database aims to make the outcomes of student research projects accessible to caseworkers and forensic science providers, as well as those involved in longer R&D projects.
