International Journal of Integrative Pediatrics and Environmental Medicine


International Journal of Integrative Pediatrics and Environmental Medicine  is a peer reviewed open access medical journal that publishes original research, reviews, case reports, and letters focused on the interactions between children and their physical and psychological environment. Journal topics center on modifiable factors, such as environmental pollution, child-parent relationships, social circumstances, quality of life of the sick child, ill-child school performance, mental health, and sensitivity to environmental factors. Topics concerning the integration of conventional pediatrics with complementary and alternative medicine for children and research about environmental impacts on cellular and molecular mechanisms of development are of great interest.

•    To fill a unique niche for practical information about physiological, pharmacological, psychological, and pathological forces that impact children.
•    To afford an international platform for meaningful interdisciplinary collaboration to promote safe, effective, and affordable global pediatric care.
•    To connect conventional and evidence-based complementary pediatric medicine to produce overall wellness.
