Among SciFed's laundry list of journals is the SciFed Journal of Forensics. The journal "encourages genuine, non-plagiarized ... submissions [that's good to know!] such as research article, ... image article, videos & graphical presentations ... ." If you like to write papers that drag on and on, it may be the place for you, as it "aims in publishing enormous esteemed manuscripts."
The editor-in-chief is Lawrence A. Presley of Liberty University. Mr. Presley is an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice. He also works for Juniper Publishers' Journal of Forensic Sciences and Criminal Investigation, another flaky journal. The 27-member editorial board has no US members. One member is a Nigerian graduate student who is "an editor to handful of journals." Another is a cancer researcher with no forensic science (or other) publications mentioned, but he "has peer-reviewed many journals."
