- Published on 03 June 2021
In July 2020, we were pleased to announce that SICOT-J had been accepted for indexation in Scopus, widely recognised as one of the world’s leading science databases.

The process of listing articles from 2015-2019 is in progress and we expect all content to be fully indexed by Scopus shortly.

The unexpected finding may be linked to how riders fall during accidents
Maybe parents are right to bristle when their infatuated offspring brings home a motorcycle rider: despite only making up 10% of vehicles on US roads, motorcycle riders comprise 40% of all traffic accident trauma patients.
