Editorial Note for Journal of Pediatrics& Health Research
I am pleased to mention that during the year 2019, all issues of volume 4 were published online well within the time and the print issues were also brought out and dispatched within 30 days of publishing the issue online. Journal of Pediatrics& Health Research during this year also brought out the 32nd International Conference on Pediatric Nursing. The Journal of Pediatrics& Health Research has an impact factor of 0.82 and ISSN No: 2574-2817. During the calendar year 2019, IPPHR received a total of 15 papers, out of which 10 articles (66%) were rejected in the preliminary screening due to plagiarism or being out of the format and peer review process. During 2019 around 5 articles were subjected for publication after they were accepted in the peer review process. In the 2 issues of Volume 4 published during the year 2019, a total of 5 articles were published (at an average of 2 articles per issue). A total of 30 research scientists from all over the world reviewed the 5 articles published in volume 4. Average publication lag time of an article was further reduced to 2-3 weeks. During the calendar year 2019, a total of 5 Editors, 30 Reviewers joined the board of IPPHR and contributed their invaluable services towards contribution as well as publication of articles. I take this opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of Emmanuel Ifeanyi Obeagu during the final editing of articles published and the support rendered by the editorial assistant, Dr. Masashi Emoto in bringing out issues of IPPHR in time. I would also like to express my gratitude to all the authors, reviewers, the publisher, the advisory and the editorial board of IPPHR, the office bearers for their support in bringing out yet another volume of IPPHR and look forward to their unrelenting support to bring out the Volume 5 of IPPHR in scheduled time.
