Letter to the Editor-A Contribution to Contextual Information Management in Bloodstain Pattern Analysis: Preliminary Idea for a Two-Step Method of Analysis


To address the potential for extraneous contextual information to bias forensic examinations 1, 2, forensic disciplines must consider ways to effectively manage this information. At the heart of developing contextual information management (CIM), procedures is the identification of types of information that are task-relevant and task-irrelevant. Effective CIM will enable forensic examiners to have access to the task-relevant information, while at the same time shielding them from the task-irrelevant information. How a CIM approach might transpire will largely depend on the method of forensic analysis.
