Special Issue "Child Injury Prevention 2015"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2016).
As you are no doubt aware, child injury remains a significant and preventable problem worldwide. Research and interventions are making a difference in some countries, but far too many children die or suffer serious consequences. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Child Injury Prevention 2015”, offers an opportunity to publish high-quality multi-disciplinary injury prevention research. We are particularly interested in research related to preventing the leading causes of injury death (e.g., road traffic, drowning, poisoning, burns), or injuries associated with a high burden (e.g., sports-related injuries). We would welcome papers related to evidence of successful interventions (both policy and practice), as well as indicators/surveillance initiatives. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed by experts in the field, and would be due in February 2016.
