APTR is pleased to announce that its journal, the American Journal of Preventive Medicine has joined other research outlets in supporting firearms research by providing public access to the journal's published research on gun violence, free of charge. AJPM, which is jointly sponsored by APTR and the American College of Preventive Medicine, believes gun violence is an important public health issue and is committed to supporting research at the intersection of firearms and public health, especially given the lack of funding support and other legislative obstacles that have stifled firearms research in the United States. 

The new Firearms Research collection includes about 40 articles published since 2011, and it can be found at http://www.ajpmonline.org/content/firearm_research and on Science Direct. The free access begins April 5 in conjunction with National Public Health Week.
