I subscribe the magazine from its first issue. There are many interesting things for both professionals and for young specialists. Among the advantages of the publication, I can point out that to change from a "reader" into the "author" is quite simple - the circle of the issues involved is very wide and a diversity of opinion is welcomed.

Professionalism is very important in any case. Magazine on criminology and forensics, a priori can not be boring. But when the publications are responsible for the preparation of real specialists, attention to them is doubled! I sincerely wish the journal editorial board, as well as the entire staff IGYU: "Keep it up!"
