Injury Prevention is an international peer reviewed journal, offers the best in science, policy, and public health practice to reduce the burden of injury in all age groups around the world. The journal publishes original research, opinion, debate and special features on the prevention of unintentional, occupational and intentional (violence-related) injuries. It is the official journal of the Society for Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR) and the International Society for Child and Adolescent Injury Prevention (ISCAIP).
Global burden of injury
The Global Burden of Disease study covering 188 countries reports that the global toll of injuries on daily life is down by almost a third since 1990. However, although the world is becoming a safer place, injuries remain an important cause of ill health and death - almost a billion people worldwide sustained injuries in 2013.
NEW! Faster submission
We know that authors can find the manuscript submission process time-consuming, so we are pleased to report that we have implemented a streamlined submission process for original research articles. By asking fewer questions at initial submission we hope to minimise the time that authors spend uploading their manuscripts and responding to post-submission queries, resulting in a faster time to first decision.
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 republished one of these in each issue in 2015 alongside a commentary on the importance of the paper.
