Journal of Pediatric Diseases

About This Journal

Journal of Pediatric Diseases (JPedD) is a peer-reviewed, gold Open Access journal that focuses on the medical conditions and diseases affecting infants, children, and adolescents, along with their diagnoses, treatments and possible prevention strategies. The journal publishes studies from a broad scope of pediatric specialties and across a wide range of geographical areas.

We particularly welcome reports on previously unknown conditions affecting young patients, and novel (or improved) therapies that could significantly improve the quality of life of patients suffering from serious disorders. In addition, we are also interested in communicating research on community- and government-level policies that directly affect pediatric healthcare. We aim to publish topics that include, but are not limited to:

• General pediatrics
• Pediatric infectious diseases
• Pediatric medicine and drug development
• Pediatric allergy and autoimmune diseases
• Pediatric vaccination and healthcare policies
• Pediatric oncology
• Pediatric psychiatry and neurology
• Pediatric surgery

Figures submitted should avoid unnecessary decorative effects (e.g. 3D graphs) as well as be minimally processed (e.g. changes in brightness and contrast applied uniformly for the entire figure). It should also be set against a white background. Please remember to label all figures (e.g. axis etc.) and add in captions (outside the figure) as required. All figures must have a brief title (also known as caption) that describes the entire figure without citing specific panels, followed by a legend defined as description of each panel.

    The preferred file formats are TIFF and JPEG. All figures should be legible in print form and of optimal resolution. Optimal resolutions preferred are 300 dots per inch for RBG colored, 600 dots per inch for greyscale and 1200 dots per inch for line art. Although there are no file size limitation imposed, authors are highly encouraged to compress their figures to an ideal size without unduly affecting legibility and resolution of figures. This will also speed up the process of uploading in the submission system.

    The Editor-in-Chief and Publisher reserve the right to request from author(s) the high-resolution files and unprocessed data and metadata files should the need arise at any point after manuscript submission for reasons such as production, evaluation or other purposes. The file name should allow for ease in identifying the associated manuscript submitted.
