April 3, 2014 – The International Chiropractic Association's Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics is making its peer-reviewed publication, the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (JCCP), available online starting with the March 14 issue. The JCCP online version is available at www.jccponline.com.
"We are excited to launch a more accessible venue for field clinicians who are interested in maternal and pediatric chiropractic," said Sharon Vallone, a chiropractor and the editor of JCCP. "We are hoping that the open access format will also stimulate more scientific writing among chiropractors who work with this population and would like to share their research and clinical experience in a professional journal."

Co-editor, and also a chiropractor, Cheryl Hawk stressed the importance of enhanced capability for sharing research in chiropractic paediatrics.

"The sharing of scholarly papers, of research big and small, even of practitioners' case reports is vital to developing clinical trials and larger research projects," said Hawk. "The availability of these papers can have a significant impact on providing the evidence for chiropractic pediatrics and also making a difference in patient outcomes."

Council chair Lora Tanis welcomed the new development and thanked the JCCP editors and council staff for their "expertise and talents to make this happen."

"The ICA Pediatrics Council is committed to providing excellence in pediatric clinical education, but is also committed to providing resources that will help the chiropractic practitioner be a better, more informed clinician so the care he/she provides is always safe, appropriate and of a high standard. The JCCP is one such resource, and we hope DCs will take advantage of this open access format to learn and keep current."

The Pediatrics Council was established by the International Chiropractors Association in 1992 to provide doctors of chiropractic with advanced education in the specialty of pediatrics. From the beginning the Council has been in the forefront of pediatric education, establishing a three-year board certified diplomate in chiropractic paediatrics, providing superior clinical continuing education for DCs at its Annual Conferences and Symposiums in the U.S. and abroad, and supporting research by providing the evidence for chiropractic pediatrics through the only peer-reviewed pediatrics journal in the chiropractic profession, providing a platform for the presentation of research papers at its educational events.
