The confirmation of the inclusion of the printed collection “Criminalistics and forensics” in the list of scientific professional editions of Ukraine is given in Appendix 9 to the order of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine dated December 22, 2016 No. 1604.

Recall the history of the collection “Criminalistics and forensics” began in December 1964, when the scientists of Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise, edited by Doctor of Law, Professor V.P. Kolmakov prepared for publication the first issue, which was published in 1965. The collection was the first interdepartmental annual scientific and scientific-methodical publication in the field of forensic science and forensic examination in the Ukrainian SSR and was issued with the support of the Legal Commission under the Council of Ministers of the Ukrainian SSR.

From the very beginning, the editorial board of the collection worked on the basis of Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise, whose staff made many creative efforts to cover the most pressing and problematic issues that arose among criminologists and forensic experts, law enforcement and judicial officials, defenders, workers, teachers and the student community of law facilities.

The editorial board of the collection and the staff of KFI have always focused on the introduction of the latest achievements of forensic science in the investigative, judicial and expert practice, improving and expanding the possibilities of its directions: from forensic techniques, investigative tactics, methods of investigating and preventing crimes, and in particular methods of expert research.
