Research in Pediatrics & Neonatology is an international open access peer reviewed journal that crosses the boundaries between neonatologists, pediatricians, obstetricians and child health specialists. RPN’s main focus is to ensure that the most important paediatric, perinatal, reproductive and obstetric studies reach researchers and clinicians for whom the results are especially relevant. These papers encompass both clinical research and basic science including observational studies, randomised trials and epidemiology. An important function of RPN is to bring together empirical research, reviews and clinical studies of high excellence arising from different points of view. It publishes original research articles, commentaries, books, reviews, study designs, detailed methodologies and review articles. RPN mainly deals with the publication of articles related to health medical and clinical care of infants, children and adolescents. RPN encourages authors to submit brief clinical, laboratory case reports, expert commentary, medical progress, insightful editorials, grand rounds, “classic” physical examinations, and novel insights in clinical and academic pediatric medicine that is related to every aspect of a child’s health.
