Call for papers

We invite you to submit an article to one of our thematic series/collections:

  • Female genital mutilation/castration
    Submissions can be in a variety of formats, such as personal testimonies, case studies, descriptions of programs, and reports of interventions that have been tested and shown to decrease FGM/C or episiotomies. We will encourage publication about these programs at local, regional or hospital level and also changes over time of prevalence/ incidence.

  • Respectful care during childbirth at health facilities
    In this series we aim to publish high-quality results from primary qualitative and quantitative research, as well as commentaries from both the research community and from less heard voices in maternal health, such as human rights activists, advocacy groups, and grassroots organizations.

Featured supplement: Building community-level resilience for the care of women with pre-eclampsia

In this supplement, the studies report a number of enablers and barriers in each setting, which have informed the implementation of a cluster–randomized trial (cRCT) aimed at reducing pre-eclampsia-related, and all-cause, maternal and perinatal mortality and major morbidity using community-based identification and treatment of pre-eclampsia in selected geographies of Nigeria, Mozambique, Pakistan and India. This supplement unpacks the diverse community perspectives on determinants of maternal health, variant health worker knowledge and routine management of HDP, and viability of task sharing for preeclampsia identification and management in select settings.
