Call for papers: Frontiers in Public Health

Dear colleagues,

Dr. In-Ju Kim, Dr. Thurmon Lockhart and Dr. Sophia Yue Li are planning a Special Collection proposal that will be submitted to “Frontiers in Public Health”. The topic of the proposed Special Collection is slip resistance measurements (and related slip and fall research). Frontiers in Public Health is a multidisciplinary open-access journal that publishes rigorously peer-reviewed research and is at the forefront of disseminating and communicating scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to researchers, academics, clinicians, policymakers and the public worldwide. The journal aims at overcoming current fragmentation in research and publication, promoting consistency in pursuing relevant scientific themes, and supporting finding dissemination and translation into practice.

If you are interested in contributing an article to this Special Collection, please contact Dr. Sophia Yue Li at

As a platform for exchanging up-to-date information on fall prevention and discussing various Slips, Trips and Falls (STF) research topics, STF Technical Committee would like to encourage you to consider this opportunity and looks forward to hearing your feedback.
