In a separate section entitled Young Forum, the print edition of the journal offers young scientists in midwifery and related fields the opportunity of broad dissemination of the results of the scientific work undertaken as part of their studies (for example a Bachelors or Master’s thesis) to a specialist audience.
The papers should be research-oriented and fulfil journal requirements as far as possible with regard to the framework of the qualifying work. In addition to publication of abstracts in German and English, short articles derived from qualifying theses and providing a more comprehensive presentation of the work than an abstract can be submitted.
The abstracts and short articles in the section ‘Young Forum’ are handled differently to original articles. They are not subjected to the review process, but are edited for content and adherence to guidelines. These works can also undergo one or several rounds of revision. Young Forum articles are published in the print edition of the Journal of Midwifery Science and not online in the GMS Journal of Midwifery Science.
We look forward to your contribution.
