Would you like to write an article for the journal? If so, we want to hear from you.
Diabetes Care for Children & Young People considers the following article types:
Innovations in care (1,500–2,000 words): explanations of how a particular local service has been organised to benefit people with diabetes and examples of good practice.
Case studies/series (1,000 words): examples of positive outcomes, parent and child engagement, challenges experienced and addressed, how your interactions with individual patients change over time and any relation to clinical outcomes, transitional care, changes in treatment.
Research articles (1,500–2,000 words): original research, with background, aims, methods, results, discussion, limitations and conclusion. Articles should consider the implications for clinical practice and, where necessary, ethical approval should be sought and stated.
Opinion and analysis (1,000 words): appraisal of newly published clinical guidelines and assessment of how they sit alongside existing guidelines and impact on the management of diabetes in children and young people or reviews of research or national/international meetings.
