Journal Abstracts

We have provided abstracts, summaries, and annotations of some recent articles in the literature that we thought would be of interest to forensic practitioners. We plan on updating this site every three months. All of the clinicians who work for the Forensic Division are encouraged to submit abstracts of articles of interest that they have read and we will try to include them on this site. You can either just copy the abstract from the article or you can add a brief note (2 or 3 lines) indicating the relevance or importance of the article for forensic practitioners.

If you would like to submit abstracts for this site, please contact Ira Packer at: Ira.packer@umassmed.edu
