Editorial: Swipe. Scroll. Learn.


In 2003, we launched the first issue of Evidence Technology Magazine.

In 2008, we published our first-ever digital replica, bringing the look and feel of ETM’s print version to your screen or mobile device.

In 2016, we said goodbye to our print edition and embraced a fully digital publication.

And today, we are taking another step forward: a brand-new digital platform that will change the way you read and interact with Evidence Technology Magazine.

We loved the way our previous digital edition looked on a big computer monitor. But it admittedly fell short on smartphones and tablets. Over the years, the portion of readers who come to ETM through their mobile devices has grown to 25 percent. Pinching to zoom on text and images was not the most reader-friendly approach. So, we’ve changed that.

On this new platform, you swipe right or left to view different articles, and then scroll down to read the text. Tap the photos and charts to make them larger on your screen. Click the videos to play them right in the magazine. Spend a few minutes with it and you will find the controls to be intuitive. And, best of all, the text and images change size to provide the best readability on whatever device you are using.

Since before that first issue was published in 2003, our goal was to provide a place for crime scene investigators and laboratory professionals to come to learn. Over the years, the way we share that information has evolved, but our mission has remained the same. Now, whether you’re sitting at your desktop, out in the field with a laptop, commuting with a smartphone, or lounging at home with a tablet, I hope you’ll take some time to explore this new way of delivering ETM. Swipe a little. Scroll a little. And learn a lot.

Lifting Latent Fingerprints from Difficult Surfaces

ALMOST ANYONE can find, process, and lift a latent print that happens to be in a logical and obvious place like a door handle, a beer can, or a butcher knife. But sometimes, a latent print is not just sitting there in a logical and obvious place. Sometimes, you have to use your imagination to find the print and your skills to lift it.
