It has been 28 years since the establishment of the Chinese Journal of Pediatric Surgery in 1980 as a quarterly publication. Five years later in 1985, the journal was developed into a bimonthly, while the pages per issue were increased from 64 to 96 in 2001. Now the journal has become a monthly periodical with 64 pages. The major readers of the journal are pediatric surgeons. The advanced theories and achievements in pediatric surgery have been widely reported in the journal under the principle of “combining theory with practice and integrating popularization with progress”. The columns in the journal include Editorial Statement,Original Articles, Clinical Research, Experimental Study, Technical Improvement,Reviews,Short Communications,Case Reports,and Clinical Case Pathological Conference. To meet the needs of readers for continuous medical education,some new sections,such as Experience in Operation, Review of Medical Book, and Medical News, may be published in the future. The journal was honored with the High-Quality Specialized Journal for Pediatric Surgery Award by Hubei Province in 1996. Moreover, a great number of published articles have been indexed and abstracted by several foreign databases. All articles published are available in the Chinese Science Citation Database,the Chinese Scientificand Technical Papersand Citations Database, the Chinese Academic Journal Comprehensive Evaluation Database, Chinese Science Abstracts, and the Chinese Journal Full-text Database—CNKI, Wangfang,VIP. All distinguished articles related to clinical and experimental research on pediatric surgery are warmly welcomed.
