Road safety and accident prevention (Guest Editorial)

Tay, Richard S. (2004) Road safety and accident prevention (Guest Editorial). Applied Health Economics and Health Policy, 3(1), p. 3.


It is most gratifying that the World Health Organization has designated road safety as the theme for its World Health Day this year. Road crashes are a major cause of death and injury in many developing and developed countries. This is despite the considerable progress made by the road safety community in reducing the road toll over the last three decades. It is, therefore, appropriate that Applied Health Economics and Health Policy commissioned a special theme titled Road Safety and Accident Prevention, to be published in this and the previous issue (volume 2, issue 4), bringing together researchers from around the world.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
