The History:


In 2008 the Journal of Forensic Odonto-Stomatology moved into a new era with the replacing of the printed version with an on-line version. This is available without subscription on this website. Abstracts from previous issues can also be accessed here. 

The journal is refereed, fully indexed and is found in the large data bases, i.e. MEDLINE.  This is a quality international journal which has been published continually twice each year in June and December for 25 years.  The areas of forensic odontology covered in the journal are Research, Case Reports, Reviews and Techniques.  

The fore-runner of this journal was the International Journal of Forensic Dentistry which was published between July 1973 and April 1977.  There was a break of six years with no publications in the forensic odontology area.  Then in June 1983 Volume 1 of the new Journal of Forensic Odonto-Stomatology was published in South Africa with Professor H.A. Shapiro as the Editor.  After his death in 1984 the editorial responsibilities were taken over by the local Editorial Board members in Cape Town, South Africa.

At the General Assembly of I.O.F.O.S. held in Vancouver in 1987 the proposal to make this journal the official publication of I.O.F.O.S. was adopted.  The production of the journal was shifted from South Africa to the Forensic Odontology Unit of The University of Adelaide, Australia, and Dr. Cyril Thomas in Sydney was appointed editor, a position he held until December 2003.  Dr Helen James of the Forensic Odontology Unit, The University of Adelaide held the position of editor from January 2004 until December 2007. 

The initial transition of the JFOS from a paper to an electronic journal was ably handled by a new editor, Jules Kieser, who handed over the reigns to Dr Judy Hinchliffe in the beginning of 2010.
