Abstract

In this paper we transfer a well-known grade schema of scientific maturity from the domain of software engineering into the domain of digital forensics research. On the basis of this maturity schema and its grades we classify the current state of maturity in the research field of digital forensics, and we argue for more efforts towards higher levels of scientificness in this still new field of research.
