Publications

Forensic Science: The Basics Kathy Mirakovits co-authored the textbook, Forensic Science: The Basics, with Dr. Jay A. Siegel. The 3rd edition of the textbook was published, which is fully updated to reflect current best practices, and includes three new chapters on the use of detector dogs in forensic science, forensic engineering, and digital evidence & computer forensics.

The Basics of Investigating Forensic Science: A Laboratory Manual Kathy also co-authored The Basics of Investigating Forensic Science: A Laboratory Manual, with Gina Londino. This lab manual is an excellent companion to the textbook but it can also stand alone as a lab manual for beginning forensic science lab courses. The labs are divided into five units: Forensic Science and Crime Scene Investigation, Patterns and Impressions, Forensic Biology, Forensic Chemistry, and Forensic Physics.

Teachers may request an examination copy of both the textbook and the lab manual through the publisher via the following links:
