Call for papers: Injury surveillance: Next generation

The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (CDC's Injury Center) is pleased to announce that it will sponsor two supplemental issues of the journal Injury Prevention. The first supplement will highlight population-level change in injury prevention while the second supplement will focus on data. 

Call for Papers: “Injury surveillance: Next generation” - In recent years, we have seen dramatic changes in the knowledge economy brought about by the increased capabilities of communications technology, and by increased recognition of the potential of information to empower society to achieve its goals (including use of new data and data sources, real time data access, big data, visualization, electronic health records, data linkage, and syndromic surveillance). This supplement will provide an opportunity for people to demonstrate that surveillance is an essential element of contemporary injury prevention practice, and will demonstrate how the new technologies can be harnessed by injury surveillance systems to achieve even better injury prevention benefits.

Submission Requirements and Process

The journal invites authors to submit proposals for the supplements. Potential authors should submit a 1000 word proposal by email to the guest editor, Dr. Rod McClure, at [email protected] Submissions must be received by April 30, 2015 and include the following: 
The surveillance methods used, and evidence of the extent to which it has been or could be applied to enhance injury prevention practice.

The guest editor will review the proposals and invite selected authors to submit a full manuscript. The guest editor will support the authors during the formative phases of the manuscript preparation. The submitted final manuscript will be subject to formal independent peer review in accordance with the Journal’s usual practice.

Proposal submissions should be submitted by April 30, 2015 to Dr. Rod McClure at [email protected]
