Call for papers on injuries

The following is a note from the editor-in-chief of Chronic Diseases and Injuries in Canada:

Chronic Diseases and Injuries in Canada has formally changed its name to include the word "Injuries". The editors of the journal would be interested in seeing papers that support or challenge current platforms for injury risk assessment and/or make novel use of available data sources to report on injury risk factors. They would also be interested in receiving manuscripts of structured reviews of population interventions meant to reduce injury risk in the Canadian population. Published by the Public Health Agency of Canada, this quarterly peer-reviewed journal discusses important issues in chronic disease and injury prevention, surveillance and epidemiology. The journal is indexed in MEDLINE, Scopus, SciSearch, Journal Citation Reports, CAB Abstracts/Global Health and the Canadian Virtual Health Library. While still a niche publication, CDIC has tripled its submissions since 2008. It has just received its first impact factor (1.09). As CDIC is open access and fully bilingual, its articles are picked up by francophone researchers in Europe and Africa. Submission guidelines may be found at: http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/publicat/cdic-mcbc/authinfo-eng.php

For more information about our focus on "Injuries": http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/publicat/cdic-mcbc/31-3/ar-01-eng.php Submission deadlines are as follows: May 15, 2012, August 15, 2012, November 15, 2012, January 1, 2013, etc. We would also like to extend an invitation to subscribe to our journal, if you have not already done so. There is no charge for the subscription as the journal is open access. You will receive quarterly emails with the table of contents and links to the full-text articles. You will also receive special notice of our themed supplements. Just let us know and we would be happy to add you to our electronic distribution list.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards,
