A technical note describes a technical aspect of a field or issue and report on a procedure or method, or work on validation of techniques or methodologies; it is of insufficient length to justify a full paper, but full experimental details are required. A communication reports briefly preliminary research results of which immediate availability to the forensic science community is deemed important.
