Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
This section will cover all aspects in the field of fetal and neonatal medicine. We are aiming for reports, from experimental to clinical, that provide a valid and clear message for scientists and clinicians. We will be interested in basic science research involving laboratory, animal or physiological experiments, that will give us new insight or increase our understanding in (patho)physiology and biological processes in fetuses and neonates. Also clinical observational studies are considered, especially original observational data that provides new rationale for further investigation or caution for current therapies. We encourage to submit randomized controlled clinical trials, results from big data and/or quality improvement projects. Since technology plays an important role in neonatology, we also aim for reporting technical innovation in the field

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Neonatology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Classification, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Neonatology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Neonatology will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Pediatrics.
