This peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (JDFSL) focuses on the advancement of the field by publishing the state of the art in both basic and applied research conducted worldwide. We purposefully chose to use the word "cyber" in our tagline, instead of "digital," to emphasize the cyber culture surrounding computing, and the word "cyber" also extends itself beyond the technical domain of computing. The Journal’s main aims are to open up the landscape for innovation and discussion, and to continuously bridge the gap between the science and practice of cyber forensics, security and law. This journal encourages both scientists and practitioners to share their discoveries and experiences.

In the summer of 2020, the JDFSL will be transitioning its publishing policy to publish articles incrementally rather than on an issue-based format. This change will better serve the Digital Forensics community by producing high quality content while the timely subject matter is most relevant. Submissions that have gone through the double-blind peer review process and that are accepted by the JDFSL will be published and made available immediately.

The JDFSL is not taking new submissions at this time.
