Aims & Scope
Pediatric Oncall Journal is the official journal of Pediatric Oncall. It is in publication since 2004. From the beginning the emphasis has been on clinical pediatrics and it publishes articles that are useful for pediatricians in day-to-day practice. The journal publishes editorials, review articles, original articles, case reports, viewer’s choice (letter to editor) and scientific correspondence with commentaries on papers in pediatrics. There are also sections such as Teaching Files (Grand Rounds) and Spot Diagnosis (IMAGE GALLERY) to help clinicians to deal with unusual cases in their clinical practice. The international, peer-reviewed papers cover a wide range of diseases in childhood. The main aim is to enable authors from across the globe to publish their unusual cases and research which changes clinical practice on an international platform. The emphasis of the journal is on the clear, concise presentation of information of direct clinical relevance to both hospital and community-based pediatricians. Contributors are chosen for their recognized knowledge of the subject.
The journal is abstracted and indexed in Index Copernicus, Ulrichsweb, Open-J-Gate, Locator Plus and Safety Lit. The layout of the journal, including the design and colour, enables fast assimilation of key information. For ease of reference, Pediatric Oncall Journal is available in print and online formats.
