The 60th anniversary of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences Scientific Meeting is being held this month, and with that, Forensic Magazine® begins its fifth year of publication.

We launched at the 2004 AAFS meeting in Dallas, Texas with an eight-page preview issue. Those with us from the beginning remember that we started out as ‘the big magazine,’ since we published in a tabloid format. We knew very few people in the industry and we had a lot to learn.

We’ve come a long way since Dallas. Today, we are the premier business-to-business (B2B) magazine focusing on forensic science.

Forensic Magazine enjoys the luxury of vendor support from some of the most respected science companies in the world, as well as large and small suppliers for the crime scene market. We would be unable to bring you the magazine at no cost without this support.

As Chief Editor, I enjoy the luxury of working with a distinguished group of professionals who advise me on editorial content. This Editorial Advisory Board is made up of individuals who have become great friends to me and the rest of Vicon Publishing; writing articles, answering questions, and helping the editorial process grow to include articles covering a wide range of forensic topics and disciplines. These individuals, along with their companies and agencies, have invested time and energy to help bring you quality articles that always aim to educate and contain useful, ‘take-away’ information and commentary.

While usually interesting and often challenging, my job as editor is always made enjoyable by the wonderful, smart regular columnists. Covering many aspects of forensic science, and drawing on their own knowledge and professional experience, Forensic Magazine’s columnists bring you timely information on facilities, safety, crime scene investigation, and digital forensics. I spend lots of time via e-mail and telephone with these authors, and I respect them as professionals and value the friendships we have developed.

Forensic Magazine also enjoys the luxury of readers who are engaged with us in the task of bringing information to forensic scientists. While many B2B magazines are full of vendorwritten articles, I believe we have a nice balance of editorial from those developing products as well as those in the trenches.

My mailbox is full of articles from professionals who want to share what they’ve done and what they’ve learned. Our readers are not shy about expressing their opinions, either! All of these contributions make us who we are.

We continue to bring you new features. With this issue, the magazine introduces a regular column by Chris Asplen from Gordon Thomas Honeywell Governmental Affairs. Providing examples and perspectives from around the world, the column will explore those issues that impact the successful use of DNA technology as a crime fighting tool. Highlighting the legislative, policy, and funding issues affecting forensic DNA use, Mr. Asplen will also look at innovative approaches to maximizing the potential of DNA. Chris was formerly the Executive Director of the National Commission on the Future of DNA Evidence for the U.S. Department of Justice and Director of the DNA Unit for the National District Attorneys Association.

In his current position, he consults with local, state, and foreign governments and law enforcement agencies on the use of forensic DNA technology. In this issue, Chris looks at government funding and reauthorization of the federal DNA funding bills. I welcome him to the team and look forward to his insights and commentary.

If you’re at the AAFS meeting, please stop by our booth (#328) and say hello. We look forward to seeing you.
