University of Washington

Pediatric Dimensions is an open access journal with a rapid comprehensive peer review and publication process.   The journal offers a platform, which encompasses the entire scope of Pediatric research and practice. Special emphasis will be placed on research which introduces and develops novel hypotheses and paradigms related to “child health”.

Pediatric Dimensions provides a platform for exchange of information between scientists and medical practitioners.    The journal emphasizes translational sciences extending from bench to bedside to community.   The editors will offer critical review of manuscripts in order to enhance submitted research, and thus encourage submissions by trainees and early investigators.

In addition to original research, Pediatrics Dimensions considers high quality manuscripts featuring critical literature review and novel health care and scientific research methods, and those presenting and developing important new hypotheses.   The editor also offers opportunity to publish critiques of current literature related to Pediatric science.   The journal considers all research related to Developmental Sciences and Pediatric Medicine, including all subspecialties.
