On behalf of the editorial board, I would like to express my gratefulness and thanks to all who shared their time and effort to help in the development and progress of the Saudi Journal of Forensic Medicine and Sciences (SJFMS) including production staff, editors, and reviewers. I wish all of them a new year full of scientific achievements, productivity, success, joy, and happiness. As well, I would like to thank all the authors who contributed in the production of the 2nd issue of SJFMS and selected our journal to submit their work. Unfortunately, the SJFMS could not publish all the submitted manuscripts, with about 20% of them being accepted for publication in the final version of the current issue.

The 2nd issue of the SJFMS has expressed an eventual rise in the journal outreach that was demonstrated through the steady growth in journal access' and articles' download rate as well as the expansion in the authors' geographical distribution. In comparison to the 1st issue, we tried to cover new topics including new adjunct therapy in the management of acute intoxication by organophosphorus substrates that represent general health burden in many developing countries due to their widespread availability. As well, the current issue puts focus on the importance of the appropriate and well-timed collection of bite-mark evidence following the standardized guidelines and how inadequate dealing with evidence collection could lead to breakdown of justice. Finally, this issue tried to highlight the barriers that confront organ donation by assessing the perception of adopted consent policies and how they could perceive its incentive for humanity.

It is important to have a good balance of different article types within the journal. Thus, the editorial board is highly encouraging the publication of technical and clinical studies of high-quality evidence-based guidelines covering legal, health, ethical, and social issues in the fields of forensic sciences and forensic medicine.
