Focus and Scope

African Safety Promotion: A Journal of Injury and Violence Prevention (ASP) is a forum for discussion and debate among scholars, policy-makers and practitioners active in the field of injury prevention and safety promotion. ASP seeks to promote research and dialogue around a central public health issue that affects Africa, namely injury and violence.

SUBJECT COVERAGE
Issues of the ASP's predecessor, the Institute for Social and Health Science's Monograph Series, addressed a variety of injury and violence related topics, for example:
• injury surveillance methodologies
• costing techniques
• epidemiological research findings
• health systems research
• theoretical formulations of the risks and resiliences associated with violence in low-to-middle income contexts
• theoretical and research investigations of the benchmark injury prevention and containment interventions
ASP is administered by the Crime, Violence and Injury Lead Programme. The Crime, Violence and Injury Lead Programme was established in October 2001 and is jointly managed and developed by the South African Medical Research Council (MRC) and the UNISA Institute for Social and Health Sciences (ISHS). The brief of this Programme is to contribute to injury prevention and safety promotion in South Africa and more widely, in Africa. The Programme thus seeks to contribute to and promote the continent's health status, safety, and quality of life, specifically through public-health-orientated research aimed at preventing death, disability and suffering arising from crime, violence and unintentional injury.
ASP seeks to promote research and dialogue about injury and violence on the continent. As such, the journal will publish a spectrum of topics of interest to researchers, practitioners and policy makers in the injury and violence prevention sector. All articles in the journal are subject to peer review.
