The Editorial in this issue is by Professor Sonia M. R. Vasconcelos, a member of the organizing committee of the 4th World Conference on Research Integrity, held May 31to June 3, 2015, in Rio de Janeiro. One of the Editors-in-Chief and an Assistant Editor of CSP participated in the conference. The conference emphasized the need for further progress in discussions and measures to prevent unethical research practices, and the Editorial provides an in-depth analysis of the subject.
This edition of CSP features two articles in the Perspectives section. One article discusses the emergence of the Chikungunya arbovirus. The other article is co-authored by two Brazilian researchers, Francisco Pedra and Ubirani Otero, together with leading Italian researcher Benedetto Terracini, who nine years ago defended a total ban on chrysotile asbestos.
We are also publishing one Review article about the construction of the social on the frontier between disciplines, drawing on the thinking of Roger Bastide. In this same edition, we also have the privilege of publishing the sample design from the ERICA study, which will make a great contribution to research on cardiovascular risk in adolescents.
In this issue of CSP as a whole, as always we seek to present the wide variety in the field of collective health, with articles on leprosy, healthcare, behaviors, food security, and health of the elderly, among other topics.
