Aims and Scope

The Journal of Computer and Forensic Sciences is an open access, peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the University of Criminal Investigation and Police Studies in Belgrade, covering advanced and innovative research across the fields of computer and forensic sciences. The aim of the journal is to provide a platform through which authors can communicate their viewpoints on diverse but often related aspects of computer and forensic sciences and a source of information to support advancing research, education, and practice in these fields.

The scope of the journal covers new developments in:

Computer Science: natural language processing, image processing, intelligent technical systems, human-machine interaction, machine learning, modeling, classification, and clustering, applied mathematics, biometric system synthesis and analysis, applied cryptography and cryptanalysis, knowledge-based reasoning, cognitive and affective computing, biologically-inspired computing, information security and safety, digital forensics, big data systems and architectures, mobile device ecosystems, ambient intelligence and smart cities, and other hot topics.


Forensic Sciences: forensic chemistry and toxicology, forensic genetics, biology, and serology, legal medicine, forensic anthropology, pathology, and odontology, forensic physics and physical sciences, firearms, explosions, and arsons, document examination, forensic biometrics, digital forensics, forensic engineering (mechanical, traffic, and civil engineering, material science and chemical technologies, biotechnology, and agriculture), environmental forensics, forensic psychology, as well as social (legal, ethical, and policy) aspects of forensic sciences that are scientifically sound and other emerging topics where science interacts with the law.
