Focus and Scope
The Sri Lanka Journal of Perinatal Medicine(SLJPM) was launched in 2019 as the official journal of the Perinatal Society of Sri Lanka. This journal is unique in the fact that it brings together three core specialties of perinatal medicine - obstetrics, neonatology and community medicine. It is an open access peer reviewed journal containing original research articles, expert reviews, current practices and other articles of interest to all involved in perinatal medicine.
Scope and Aim
The aim and scope of this journal is to contribute towards the progress of perinatology by disseminating and sharing important information among health care personnel, specially those involved in perinatal care. The journal also strives to update readers on new cutting edge processes of science related to perinatal care, not only in their own specialty but also in related subjects.
The journal invites articles not only from these three specialties, but also from any area of health or science relevant to maternal or neonatal health. Since this covers a wide spectrum of expertise it will be an ideal platform to share important information and new developments in these vital areas. It will also be an ideal tool for disseminating and networking information among these important groups of professionals. We invite local as well as international authors to submit their work to the journal.
The Sri Lanka Journal of Perinatal Medicine publishes two issues a year.
