The new Journal of Forensic Neuropsychology is the only journal that specifically covers forensically related neuropsychological research and topical issues, making it the central forum for the dissemination of scientific knowledge in this area. You can depend on the journal to provide reliable coverage of the appropriate use of clinical neuropsychology in the forensic forum. The journal publishes only the highest quality of clinical neuropsychological information for you and other professionals engaged in legal endeavors, such as practicing neuropsychologists called upon to function in the legal setting and legal professionals addressing issues of brain-behavior relationships. Over the last decade, the field of clinical neuropsychology has experienced phenomenal growth as a scientific and applied discipline, bringing along with this growth the application of clinical neuropsychology in legal settings. In response, scientific inquiries have been carried out relating to forensic topics, and the resulting works have appeared scattered in a variety of publications. Now, however, you can access one central resource for these scientific articles--the Journal of Forensic Neuropsychology. Editor Jim Hom explains, "The goal of the Journal of Forensic Neuropsychology is to be the leading scholarly source for original contributions pertinent to forensically related neuropsychological topics. JFN will address the needs of practitioners, researchers, educators, and students in the fields of neuropsychology and law by providing a forum for the discussion of brain-behavior relationships and forensic issues." The peer-reviewed Journal of Forensic Neuropsychology features mainly full-length, empirically based articles. These articles convey current research and studies in the field of forensic neuropsychology. Each issue of the journal contains: research studies, commentaries or positional papers, case studies, legal rulings, letters to the Editor, book reviews. As clinical neuropsychologists are increasingly called upon to serve in a variety of capacities in legal cases, they will need to be prepared to do so. They will use the Journal of Forensic Neuropsychology as an important reference and ready source of up-to-date scientific information to respond to these demands.
