This Special Issue focuses on research in the field of maternal and child health, including perinatal and pediatric epidemiology and health services research. We are interested in population-based research that provides generalizable insights into the causes and consequences of health disparities in pregnancy outcomes, maternal reproductive health, access to and quality of health services for preconception care, prenatal care, postpartum care, and infant and child health care. Single-center studies will not be considered for inclusion. Studies may come from clinical research sources, population-based administrative health databases, or representative sample surveys. Cross-national studies are encouraged, as well as systematic reviews provided the included studies meet the above criteria.
Prof. Dr. Russell S. Kirby
