About the series
Editorya is a place of gathering for academics, professionals, journalists, editors, writers, and intellectuals in the forensic science and criminology community to discuss and debate key issues affecting our community. Inspired by historical spaces of thought exchange, focus and deliberation such as the Roman Forums, Greek Amphitheaters and Agoras, and London’s Speakers’ Corner; Editorya aims to create an environment where opinions are heard, thoughts are challenged, ideas are refined, and most importantly, where discussion is open.

We welcome you to join us in open discussion as a participant or guest. Topics are curated to reflect important themes in our community. If you would like to propose a topic for discussion, please send an email to
