Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children is a widespread and serious health problem. Each year, an estimated 475,000 TBIs occur in children aged 0-14 in the United States. Of these more than 2,600 children die and another 37,000 are hospitalized. Residual neurological disabilities occur in 30-50% of children who have sustained severe head injury. The medical and associated costs of TBI in the United States are estimated to $60 billion per year. When children are admitted into an acute-care hospital following a severe TBI, the initial concern is survival. Once the child is medically stable, interdisciplinary team members become concerned with issues around recovery, outcome, and quality of life.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity.The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
