Social Media

Welcome to the Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health's pop-up social media site.

We've put it up to coincide with our publisher Wiley's annual meeting in November 2015.  It was most recently updated in May 2018.  Click on the links for a snapshot of what we've achieved, and how, in just under 3 years on social media. 

Our guiding reason for being on social media is to "be useful" to our readers and authors.  We want to offer new ways of finding, reading, promoting and sharing our journal's content.

We hope you find this site useful too. 

Update! April 2018: In collaboration with Wiley and the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, we have implemented a groundbreaking 24-hours free access to every article we share on social media!  Check out our infographic on the results of our trial - below.

Update! Wiley has published a case study of our social media program from three perspectives - our Online Editor, Editor-in-Chief and Publishing Manager.
