Pediatrics Open Science call for papers

The manuscript site is open for the AAP’s new open access journal Pediatrics Open Science, which will publish a broad spectrum of clinical and academic articles open to a diverse audience of health care professionals.

Open access is a publishing model in which every article is free to read, download and share. The authors and their funders, rather than subscribers and readers, cover the cost of the publication, thereby removing barriers that may deter potential readers and allowing equal access to knowledge for all.
