The Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine is a monthly, peer-reviewed journal for physicians and other health care professionals who contribute to the health of children and adolescents. The Archives provides an open forum for dialogue on a full range of clinical, scientific, advocacy, and humanistic issues relevant to the care of pediatric patients from infancy through young adulthood. The Archives is a vehicle for increased attention to adolescent health, the education of pediatric health care professionals, and disease prevention and health promotion. The Archives publishes original studies, editorials, reviews by experts, practice commentaries, case quizzes, and updates on clinical science and practice management. The Pediatric Forum provides our readers with opportunities to express their views. Archives incorporates AJDC, the oldest journal in US pediatric literature, which originated in 1911.
