Pediatrics is an official peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The single word, Pediatrics, has been chosen to indicate this catholic intent." Pediatrics has been continuously published by the American Academy of Pediatrics since January 1948. Pediatrics has the second highest impact factor (4.473, 2007 Thompson Journal Citation Reports) among all journals in the field of pediatrics.
