SafetyLit services are now supported by the SafetyLit Foundation, Inc. The SafetyLit Foundation is a non-profit corporation registered with the U.S. IRS as a 501(c)(3) charity and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law in the USA. A printed case statement in book format is available upon request. A pdf version is available HERE.
Until the summer of 2013. SafetyLit received partial support from the California Department of Public Health, Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health and Safe and Active Communities Branches, the Safe States Alliance (STIPDA), the California Office of Traffic Safety, the US-DHHS HRSA Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the US-DHHS CDC National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, and the National Farm Medicine Center at the Marshfield Clinic. SafetyLit also receives volunteer assistance from members of the American Public Health Association's Injury Control and Emergency Health Services Section and others who wish to remain anonymous.
The Instrument Project on SafetyLit was initiated through a contract from the U.S. CDC National Center for Injury Prevention and Control awarded to the Society for the Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR) and executed through the Colorado School of Public Health Pediatric Injury Prevention, Education and Research (PIPER) Program in collaboration with SafetyLit. Any copyright associated with each included instrument remains held by the author(s) or publisher.
Funding issues forced VioLit to cease operation in 2011. The Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (a research program of the Institute of Behavioral Science) at the University of Colorado at Boulder helped to make the VioLit database contents available in SafetyLit.
Although SafetyLit staff members and volunteers continue to closely monitor journal publishers and other sources, we find that there are bibliographic resources that are very helpful with identifying articles for inclusion in SafetyLit.
Parallel to the SafetyLit philosophy that there should be no toll blocking free access to information that points to the location of publications on safety topics; the SafetyLit website uses only open-source software for all of its operations.
