JURNALUL PEDIATRULUI (THE PEDIATRIC’S JOURNAL) Publishing was founded 9 years ago, at the initiative of the PROFILAXIS FOUNDATION-Timisoara (non profit organization founded by a group of physicians), as a necessity of approaching the pediatrics field so little represented at that time on a publicity level, both on a local plan and on a national one. Through the themes along the years, both as reviews and statistic working, it was possible to update some knowledge from the pediatrics specializations field: neonatology, nephrology, psychiatry, neurology, psychology, ENT, ophthalmology, surgery, orthopedics, radiology. In the meantime, the magazine raised the interest of the professionals from other university centers that felt honored to publish articles within its pages.
The editorial collective initially formed of young staff and with initiative, was progressively enlarged by the cooptation of some university personalities initially from Timisoara, and later from the country and currently from abroad, having a total number of 24 members that link in harmony the professional maturity, the scientific probity with the enthusiasm of the young generation, fact that led to the progressive growth of the quality standards both in content and in graphical presentation. Initially the magazine wad edited in Romanian language, but due to the progressive interest manifested by medical personalities form abroad, the entire magazine is edited currently in English language , this being also a result of the fact that we desire the perfecting of some exchanges with other specialty magazines from abroad. The editorial college includes new members from abroad (Israel, Italy, Sweden, Austria, U.S.A.) in relation to the initial Application form.
It is kept the regularity in the appearance of the magazine numbers and the graphic qualities of editing were improved.
From 1996, the magazine is distributed also on the international plan based on order of some prestigious institutions (Austria). The appearances of the magazine from 2005 contain articles with authors from abroad (USA, India). The publication appeared until now regularly with a frequency of two numbers annually and our future intention is that the publication becomes quarterly. This fact explains the current numbering of the magazine.
