Ahead-of-print publishing ensures fastest possible knowledge transfer. The Journal provides statements on themes of topical interest as well as information and different views on controversial topics. It also informs about the academic, organisational and political aims and objectives of the World Association of Perinatal Medicine.
Topics The journal covers the entire field of perinatal medicine, obstetrics and neonatology.
Article formats Review articles, original articles, short communications, opinion papers, letters to the editor, WAPM-Newsletters
Other publications in the field The journal Case Reports in Perinatal Medicine provides practitioners in clinical practice with exemplary reports of cases that reveal specific manifestations of diseases, its progress or its treatment.
Continuous readers’ interest and significant relevance of case reports inspired the Editors and Publishers of the Journal of Perinatal Medicine to found this new journal.
The aims & scope of the new journal are very similar to those of JPM; both journals publish interdisciplinary, innovative, evidenced-based and basic science research that is both informative and useful for daily clinical practice, and both journals aim to be beneficial for future challenges.
