NewsCAP: APHA unlocks free public access to articles on firearm issues and research
APHA unlocks free public access to articles on firearm issues and research. The American Public Health Association (APHA) is offering free access to peer-reviewed research articles and commentaries on firearms and public health published in the American Journal of Public Health. Available articles cover topics such as firearm storage practices in the United States, public opinion on the issue of carrying guns in public places, and state firearm laws. In a statement, the APHA says it hopes this action will “lead to smarter evidence-based policies that enhance firearm safety and violence prevention.” Going forward, the journal will continue free public access to all research on the topic.Copyright © 2018 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
