Forensic Journal Publication Policies Regarding Population Data

Several years ago the Journal of Forensic Science (JFS) (Gaensslen 1999) and Forensic Science International (FSI) (Lincoln and Carracedo 2000) decided to reduce the amount of space taken up by published DNA population data information since STR typing has become fairly routine with the use of commercial STR kits. JFS population data is reported in 'For the Record' articles while FSI population information is recorded in 'Announcements of Population Data.' The goal of this policy is to enable researchers and forensic scientists to report population genetic data for common loci in an efficient manner and to encourage formation of web-based repositories of population data.
