A Survey of Forensic Handwriting Examination Research in Response to the NAS Report

Abstract : Advances in technology and scientific development in forensic handwriting examination (FHE) require a review in response to the challenges published in the NAS Report. This survey summarizes the advances made in theoretical and methodological approaches to handwriting examination including a review of research on the proficiency of FHEs. Technology has impacted FHE including analysis of e-signatures and use of technology for signature and handwriting authentication. A review of legal cases in the U.S. confirms how research and technological advances have met legal challenges and impacted decisions in the courtroom.
