The Forensic Examiner® is the official peer-reviewed journal of the American College of Forensic Examiners Institute. This site serves as your source of information for all aspects of the journal, including article archives, contact information, and of course, advertising information.

The Forensic Examiner® is increasingly being accessed from the internet. As such, The Forensic Examiner® is transitioning to an online, continuously published journal.  As The Forensic Examiner® has gained popularity and recognition as the world's leading forensic magazine, demand for access along with submission rates have greatly increased. The Examiner's transition from print to online availability is a response to the changing nature of journalism and scholarly publication, as well as a move to take advantage of the many opportunities offered by advances in technology and social media.  This is an exciting time for the American College of Forensic Examiners Institute® as the transition to online, continuous publication will drastically increase our readership, while enabling the ACFEI to rapidly review and publish articles.  Therefore we are enthusiastically taking the step towards removing the limitations of print production and offering The Forensic Examiner® online.  To learn more, please visit our submissions page.

Thank you for visiting, and remember to check out for questions about membership, certification, and other opportunities!
