Target Publication Dates: First two issues of 2024, Advances in Neonatal Care, 2024(1) and 2024 (2)
Submission Dates: Immediately through July 10, 2023
Parenting in the NICU is an intense journey with many uncertainties and challenging experiences. Often parents report separation and alteration to their parental role as one of the most difficult things to manage during their NICU journey. Parental well-being and closeness are necessary for parents to build bonds with their infant and NICU staff are essential in helping create opportunities to parent in the NICU. For this special series, we are calling for parenting-relevant manuscripts showcasing research on parental mental health and well-being, collaborative partnerships, clinical improvements, family-centered care practices or parent-engagement strategies to highlight various aspects of parenting in the NICU. All manuscript types typical for Advances in Neonatal Care are welcomed.
If interested in submitting a manuscript for this special series, please consider submitting the following items for consideration to the guest editor or co-editors by May 1, 2023. While not strictly required, submission of this information soon will help us with planning the series. Final submission of complete manuscripts will be due July 10, 2023.
