Aims and scope

The European Journal of Pediatrics (EJPE) is a leading peer-reviewed medical journal which covers the entire field of pediatrics. The editors encourage authors to submit original articles, reviews, short communications, and correspondence on all relevant themes and topics.

EJPE is particularly committed to the publication of articles on important new clinical research that will have an immediate impact on clinical pediatric practice. The editorial office very much welcomes ideas for publications, whether individual articles or article series, that fit this goal and is always willing to address inquiries from authors regarding potential submissions. Invited review articles on clinical pediatrics that provide comprehensive coverage of a subject of importance are also regularly commissioned. 

The short publication time reflects both the commitment of the editors and publishers and their passion for new developments in the field of pediatrics.

EJPE is active on social media (@EurJPediatrics) and we invite you to participate.

EJPE publishes across all relevant fields of research, including but not restricted to:



gastroenterology and hepatology

growth and development

hematology and oncology

imaging techniques

immunology and allergology

infectious diseases

intensive care medicine

medical genetics and metabolic diseases


nephrology and urology




pediatric surgery


preventive pediatrics and epidemiology

psychology and psychiatry, and adolescent medicine


This journal also publishes special/guest-edited issues and collections. The peer review process for these articles is the same as the peer review process of the journal in general. Additionally, if the guest editor(s) authors an article in their special issue, they will not handle the peer review process.
