The Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition (JPGN) provides a forum for original papers and reviews dealing with pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition, including normal and abnormal functions of the alimentary tract and its associated organs, including the salivary glands, pancreas, gallbladder, and liver. Particular emphasis is on development and its relation to infant and childhood nutrition.

JPGN is the official journal of the:

  • European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (ESPGHAN)

ESPGHAN is pleased to announce JPGN Reports

JPGN Reports is the new sister online open access journal of JPGN. The journal is scheduled to open for submissions towards the end of May/early June, 2020, and will focus on clinical manuscripts, including impactful case reports. 

The Scope of JPGN Reports is as follows: JPGN Reports, a joint publication of NASPGHAN and ESPGHAN, is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes novel case reports, images and videos, original articles, clinical trials protocols, review articles, short communications, letters to the editor, selected meeting proceedings, editorials and commentaries on all aspects of clinical and translational research, educational, and public health issues in the area of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition. JPGN Reports also welcomes novel exploratory hypothesis-generating research, qualitative and quantitative epidemiologic research, studies of novel mechanisms and methodologies including public health interventions, hypothesis-generating small studies, methods papers, and translational research applicable for pediatric pathogenesis and physiology in health and disease.  

As an open access journal, JPGN Reports charges an “Article Processing Fee”, as follows: articles submitted by non-members of NASPGHAN or ESPGHAN, $1,600; submissions from one or more members of NASPGHAN or ESPGHAN, $300; Case Reports, Images and Videos, $500 for non-members, $100 for members. These charges will help defray the publication costs of our online, open access journal, and will incentivize participation of society members as co-authors."
