BMC Pediatrics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of health care in neonates, children and adolescents, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology and epidemiology.
BMC Pediatrics is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.
BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
