A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
There is growing momentum in scholarly activities surrounding neonatal–perinatal health services research, which may encompass epidemiology, disparities, quality measurement, and quality improvement. The growing availability of large administrative and clinical datasets in neonatology have given us the opportunity to explore questions that may not be amenable to traditional randomized clinical trials. There is also an increasing recognition of the value of qualitative methods in order to gather and analyze data that are not available in large datasets.
Great progress has occurred in neonatology, both with advances in biomedical science and the integration of quality improvement activities. However, variation in practices and outcomes in our field continue to point to further work that can be done to implement evidence-based practice, and advance safer, more equitable care.
We invite you to contribute articles that concern emerging topics in neonatal health care to this Special Issue. Both reviews and original research will be considered for publication.
