Journal of Mother and Child

Formerly: Developmental Period Medicine/ Medycyna Wieku Rozwojowego

AIMS & SCOPE

Journal of Mother and Child (JMC) is a successor of Developmental Period Medicine/Medycyna Wieku Rozwojowego, The archive papers under the old name can be found at: journals.indexcopernicus.com.

JMC is a quarterly, peer reviewed, Open Access journal dedicated to disseminating basic and applied research related to the health of mother and child. The journal’s ambition is to create a platform for presenting original results from all areas of research studies that aim to improve human health, reflecting the connection between clinical and basic science. We at JMC strongly believe that translational medicine should support interdisciplinary collaboration, which usually results in important scientific papers. We accept original research papers, review articles, short communications and case studies.

JMC‘s scope is based on a holistic approach towards the patient, covering all medical aspects of health of a child and their mother, including such important life areas, as nutrition, psychology as well as social and bioethical issues. Most importantly, we focus on the patient through all stages of the human life cycle, from early years, i.e. prenatal and perinatal periods, through developmental period until adolescence and adulthood (maternal health). JMC follows a concept of the systems medicine, looking at the human body as part of an integrated whole which incorporates biomolecular, physiological and environment interactions.

JMC also encourages submissions of papers pertaining to rare diseases which may be a good model for a study on common disorders and thus revealing novel pathomechanisms and conditions.
