    In the interests of full disclosure, it should be no secret that we continue to consider expanding the scope of the journal to include adults. A decision will be made in the near future, but in the meantime, one point should be made clear. We agree that many strategies to prevent injuries in children are likely to benefit older persons as well, especially the elderly and the disabled. Thus, reports based largely on data involving adults, but which have a clear preventive message applicable to children or adolescents, are welcome. The critical issue is for authors to establish the relevance to “our population” until such time as that population is defined differently.
