Call for Papers: "Theme Issue 2020: Digital Approaches for Pediatric Healthcare Delivery during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic" in the JMIR Pediatrics and Parenting (JPP) Special Theme Issue/E-Collection








Given the current outbreak of the novel coronavirus worldwide, we have created a call for papers “Theme Issue 2020: Digital Approaches for Remote Pediatric Healthcare Delivery during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic”

 

Researchers are encouraged to use the JPP Theme Issue to share interim and final research data related to the digital approaches for remote pediatric healthcare delivery in different settings, such as telemedicine, web-based interventions, mobile apps, wearable devices and other novel digital strategies. We are also interested in the health impact on parents and kids during lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, school closures etc, and educational and health interventions to cope with this global public health emergency.

 

Our goal is to rapidly and openly inform efforts aimed at optimizing care delivery for children and adolescents, with or without chronic health conditions.

Other JMIR journals are also soliciting COVID19 papers, which will be prioritized for peer review and publication. As with all JMIR journals, fast-tracking is available for even faster turn-around times. 

All articles submitted to this theme issue will be shared and published rapidly through the following mechanisms:

Questions regarding this Theme Issue should be directed to the JPP Editor-in-Chief, Sherif Badawy, MD, MS, sbadawy@luriechildrens.org, JPP Section Editor, Ana Radovic, MD, MSc, ana.radovic@chp.edu or the editorial team at ed-support@jmir.org.
