NFA Journal

The National Forensic Journal is the scholarly journal of the National Forensic Association. Dr. Richard Paine and Dr. Emily Cramer from North Central College are the editors of the journal.  

The journal's current edition, call for papers, editorial board, and description can now be found at http://www.nationalforensicjournal.org  

Eventually the NFA Journal will be housed at the new site once we are able to move all of the past editions of the journal. In the interim, past editions can be found in chronological order below.
