Our Publications

Research Output

We recognise the importance of academic publishing across the spectrum of publication types. Publication in the peer-reviewed literature ensures our research meets rigorous academic standards and means it is readily available to the field. Books and book chapters provide mechanisms for dissemination of substantial pieces of scholarly work, which may influence the field for some time in the future.

Our researchers produce reports on a broad range of topics across the spectrum of injury prevention from young driver safety to safety in the home and workplace. In addition, they contribute to Parliamentary Inquiries and produce independent reports, as well as contract reports prepared for many organisations.

Project reports and injury surveillance bulletins provide direct and, importantly, rapid feedback on our research and surveillance activities to injury prevention policy makers and practitioners. The timeliness of such publications is often crucial for impacting on policy development and resource allocation.
