The International Journal of Childbirth, the official publication of the International Confederation of Midwives, is currently seeking authors who are willing to contribute articles concerning the practice of midwifery, women's health, prenatal care, and the birth process. The journal encourages the exploration of the complex and contextual issues surrounding childbirth provision and outcomes and invites manuscripts from a wide range of clinical, theoretical, political, methodological, psychological, public health, policy, and multicultural and interdisciplinary perspectives.
The following presentation style should be observed when submitting a manuscript:
Clinical and Basic Science Research. These articles should include an abstract, introduction, material and methods, case history (if applicable), results, discussion, conclusion, and references.
Reviews. Reviews should provide a comprehensive synthesis of the available information on their chosen topic. They must include headings and reference citations.
Case Reports. These should be brief reviews of either typical or atypical births and should include an abstract, introduction, case report data and findings, discussion, conclusion, and references.
Personal Narratives. These articles should be first-hand accounts of childbirth experiences. References are not required but may be included when needed to support data or quotations from published sources.
