APPD & APA Journal

As part of a partnership between the APPD and the Academic Pediatric Association (APA), all APPD member programs receive an institutional subscription to the bimonthly publication, Academic Pediatrics. Academic Pediatrics, the official journal of the APA, is a peer-reviewed publication whose purpose is to strengthen the research and educational base of academic general pediatrics. The content areas of the journal reflect the interests of Association members and other health professionals who care for children. These areas include such diverse topics as pediatric education, emergency medicine, injury, abuse, behavioral pediatrics, holistic medicine, child health services and health policy, and the environment. The journal's particular emphases include an active forum for the presentation of pediatric educational research in diverse settings, involving medical students, residents, fellows, and practicing professionals. APPD members are encouraged to submit to the journal as part of the peer-review process to disseminate scholarly works

In each issue, a section page has been set aside exclusively for the APPD. The View from the Association of Pediatric ProgramDirectors represents an effort by the APPD leadership to publish, disseminate, and communicate important APPD initiatives of interest to APPD members, APA members, and the educational community. APPD Members are invited to discuss potential articles and submissions with the Associate Editor, Bob Vinci. Bob is willing to assist with the writing and editorial process and may be reached by email at To find examples of previously published work, please use the following link: View from the APPD in Academic Pediatrics Instructions to authors may be found here.

In addition, APPD Abstracts from the APPD Annual Spring Meetings are published in the journal each summer.
