Safety 2014 themed issue
Disappointed by the cancellation of Safety 2014? We have collected the best in global injury prevention research in an online only themed issue to make up for the missed sessions. The issue is free to read for a limited time.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Injury Prevention, we asked our readers and editorial board to identify 6 of the most influential papers from the archive. We are republishing one of these in each issue alongside a commentary on the importance of the paper.
As Injury Prevention turns 20 we're looking back at some of the most influential papers published in our Anniversary Archives, starting with Fred Rivara et al's “Epidemiology of bicycle injuries and risk factors for serious injury”.
