We hope that you are doing well. See below for relevant updates and new studies.


Journal of Behavioral Medicine – Call for Papers on Gun Violence

The Journal of Behavioral Medicine is planning a special topic series devoted to scientific (both basic science and epidemiologic), translational, and policy issues related to gun violence. Their aim is to compile papers from a broad spectrum of authors that span each of these domains as well as articles that bridge science/translation/policy. They anticipate having articles completed and submitted by the end of the summer – if you are interested in proposing a topic, reach out to the editors in the next 60 days with a brief outline.


Reminder – Send us your studies!

Send us any recently published studies or projects throughout the month, and we will compile and distribute to the group.
