Journal of Maternal and Child Health (JMCH) is an electronic, open access peer-reviewed journal that publishes research articles on a broad range of topics related to maternal and child health. The journal began its publication on January, 2016, and was published four times yearly. Due to an increasing demand of research work publication, starting Volume 4 Issue 5 the JMCH is published bi-monthly, consisting of 12 articles in each issue. This journal aims to improve knowledge in maternal and child health, and ultimately the health of maternal and child population worldwide.
JMCH covers a broad range of disciplines including obstetrics, gynecology, reproductive health, pediatrics, neonatology, nutrition, family planning, developmental psychology, sociology, demography, epidemiology, public health, and preventive medicine. The journal addresses such topics as social determinants of health and disease and disparities in communicable and non-communicable diseases burden affecting the health of infants, children, women, adolescents, and families across the lifespan.
Diseases or health care issues affecting populations in the developing world are currently under-documented and underreported in the existing international journals. Therefore, the JMCH encourages authors from developing countries to publish their research papers in this journal. All articles are immediately and permanently free to read and download in pdf files.
