IJFCM covers different domains of Forensic and Community Medicine.

Through the Community Medicine domain, the journal looks into the eyes of the community with an intention to delimit new diseases and new patterns of disease and to guide future studies. The journal also aims to cover fields such as Epidemiology, Public Health Administration, Public health Management, Health Promotion, Social Sciences, Family medicine, Global Health, Maternal, and Child Health, non-communicable diseases, communicable diseases, National Health Priorities and Health Policy implications. The journal also inclines towards less explored areas such as Anthropology, Ballistics, Occupational health hazards, and related compensations and the field of Forensic Psychiatry.
