About

Aims and Scope

BMJ Paediatrics Open is a new open-access journal dedicated to publishing original research, clinical reviews and protocols that deal with any aspect of child health. The provision of child health is multidisciplinary and the journal welcomes papers from all health care professions. Papers dealing with paediatric surgery, paediatric specialties, public health, healthcare provision and qualitative research will all be accepted.

Publication decisions will be made on the scientific validity, ethical soundness and transparency of the research and whether the paper deserves publication, rather than on its apparent interest to any particular readership.

We do not publish studies conducted in animals, case reports or retrospective single centre audits. We do publish pharmacokinetic studies in the paediatric population.

BMJ Paediatrics Open is an official journal of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.

Ownership
