9780123821652: Encyclopedia of Forensic Sciences

Forensic science has been described as "the body of scientific principles and technical methods applied to criminal investigation to prove the existence of a crime and help justice determine the perpetrator of the crime and his/her modus operandi." (Pierre Margot) This encyclopedia provides a complete resource to help students, researchers, and practitioners access basic information on topics peripheral to their own areas. It is a repository of core information for refreshing the memory and will provide material to which teachers can direct students preparing coursework. It covers the core theories, methods, and techniques employed by forensic scientists, including pathologists, and the applications of these in forensic analysis, from computer fraud to disaster scene. Collection of evidence from the crime scene is very important, and description of collection and preparation of samples is an important part of the content. *This 4-volume set represents a 30% growth in articles from the first edition, with a particular increase in coverage of DNA and digital forensics *Includes an international collection of contributors *The second edition features a new 21-member editorial board, half of which are internationally based *Includes over 300 articles, approximately 10pp on average *Each article features a) suggested readings which point readers to additional sources for more information, b) a list of related Web sites, c) a 5-10 word glossary and definition paragraph, and d) cross-references to related articles in the encyclopedia *Available online via SciVerse ScienceDirect. Please visit www.info.sciencedirect.com for more information * This new edition continues the reputation of the first edition, which was awarded an Honorable Mention in the prestigious Dartmouth Medal competition for 2001. This award honors the creation of reference works of outstanding quality and significance, and is sponsored by the RUSA Committee of the American Library Association.
