Information For Authors

Interested in submitting to this journal? We’re looking for forensic engineers who are interested in giving presentations on technical topics that will further the advancement and understanding of forensic engineering at one of the academy’s two annual meetings (either summer or winter conference) and then developing those presentations into written manuscripts/papers, which will go through a single blind peer review process before publication. Only papers presented at a NAFE regular technical seminar and have received oral critique at the seminar will be accepted for review and publication. We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal's section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the process. The first step in this process is for potential authors to submit a 100 to 150-word maximum abstract for consideration at an upcoming conference.

Abstracts will be evaluated using the following criteria:

  • Is the subject of the abstract within the editorial interests of the NAFE Journal?
  • Is the proposed treatment of the subject appropriate for the forensic engineering profession?
  • Does the apparent methodology seem to be technically sound?
  • Does the abstract clearly convey what the author is planning on writing/presenting?
  • Is the abstract well written, in proper form and is it less than 150 words?
