The Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, with JAMA and the other ARCHIVES journals, will participate in a November 2003 joint theme issue on pain management. Over the last 2 decades, we have become increasingly aware of pain in children and adolescents due to illness, injury, and procedures. While advances have been made, there are many issues surrounding pain in children and adolescents that are still unknown and need investigation. In this issue of the ARCHIVES, we welcome articles on a broad range of topics related to pain and which will move the field forward. These include studies on variations in responses to pain, trends in pain management, new interventions for pain management in children and adolescents, and the effects of pain and its management on health outcomes. We are also interested in new insights into chronic pain syndromes. Since sedation of children for procedures is such an important topic and continues to present problems, we will also include articles on sedation. Articles should be received by February 15, 2003, to have the best chance for inclusion in this theme issue. Please refer to the Instructions for Authors on our Web site at http://www.archpediatrics.com for preparation and submission of papers.
