Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2008 release by the World Health Organization of the World Report on Child Injury Prevention brought children’s injuries to the forefront of international public health awareness; this awareness was re-affirmed with the 2012 release of the National Action Plan for Child Injury Prevention by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States.  Injuries are among the leading cause of death for children in every nation of the world.  Each minute, at least one child globally suffers due to a serious “accident” that might have been prevented.  This special issue has a broad focus on risk and prevention of child injury, with the ultimate goal to continue to build scientific knowledge on how we can reduce the public health burden of injury on children worldwide.  Both empirical and review paper submissions are welcome, on any topic relevant to unintentional or intentional child and adolescent injury.  Papers on injury prevention and intervention are especially encouraged.
