Publication Announcement

Forensic Document Examination in the 21st Century

Edited by Jan Seaman Kelly and Miriam Angel
Several Canadian forensic document examiners have contributed to a new book on the subject. This compendium covers many of the developments in the field from the last few years and provides a useful reference for document examiners and those who interact with document examiners such as lawyers and investigators.
The specific contributions from Canadian document examiners include these:
  • The Logical Approach to Evidence Evaluation (R. Brent Ostrum)
  • Forensic Intelligence (Samiah Ibrahim)
  • Indentation Development and Visualization (Tobin Tanaka)
  • Electrophotography (Tobin Tanaka)
  • Typography (Zain Bhaloo, Tobin Tanaka, along with US document examiner Peter Tytell)
  • Computer Generated Documents (Timothy A. Campbell)
  • Radiography (Tobin Tanaka)
  • Computational Analysis of Documents (Timothy A. Campbell)
The book is available from Routledge in both hardcover (ISBN-9780367251550) and e-book (ISBN-9781003112228) formats.

Disclosure: the contributors to the book were not paid for their contributions to the book, nor do the contributors receive royalties from any of the book sales.
