Child health: what should be done? | BMJ Paediatrics Open

“The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) has a proud and long-standing record of highlighting the problems experienced by children in the UK, both in relation to physical and mental health.4 It has also contributed internationally to promote child health, both in specific projects and through its journal Archives of Disease in Childhood. Although a highly successful journal, it is however a subscription only journal and hence is not available to many health professionals throughout the world. There is a growing recognition that open-access publishing is more beneficial for science and clinical research.5 BMJ Publishing and the RCPCH have an established track record with Archives of Disease in Childhood and have established BMJ Paediatrics Open in recognition of the need for a paediatric open access journal….We are delighted to confirm that authors from low-income countries will not be charged an article processing charge in keeping with the Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative (HINARI) guidelines….”
