The AVA Research Reviews are designed to provide members with current research findings in support of our mission to "advance health education and research on the recognition, treatment, and prevention of the health effects of violence and abuse across the lifespan."
Guidelines: Author instructions are provided to assure high quality and relevant, up-to-date reviews of research published within the past year and are available on the this website.
Procedure for Submission and Acceptance: Submit the research article you wish to review to the AVA Editorial Board (firstname.lastname@example.org) for approval. Once approved, you have four weeks to complete the Review and send it back to the Editor. The Editor will send it to a Peer Reviewer who will respond with suggested edits. When accepted, your Research Review will be posted on the AVA website.
AVA Affinity Groups are groups of AVA members who share a common interest and who wish to communicate and work together to advance knowledge and education about that topic. Take a look.
