The IPRC's Productivity

Publications by the IPRC’s Core and Affiliate Faculty

Peer-reviewed publications are one measure of research productivity. Throughout the history of our Center, we have been exceptionally productive in this area. We have built up an infrastructure that sustains research teams in injury and violence prevention (IVP), and as a result, publications have steadily increased over time. On average, the IPRC core and affiliate faculty publish nearly 100 IVP prevention papers per year.
