Child and Adolescent Health Yearbook 2012 $320.00
Editors: Joav Merrick (Ministry of Social Affairs, Jerusalem, Israel, and others)
Book Description:
In the year 2011, the new “International Journal of Child and Adolescent Health” was begun under the auspices of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development in Israel, in collaboration with Nova Science Publishers in New York, in order to facilitate an outlet for peer-reviewed papers in the areas of both child and adolescent health and human development. The editors hoped that there would be an international interest in such a new journal, and they hoped to receive good-quality reviews and original papers in these areas. This in fact happened, and in this yearbook they have gathered papers for the year 2012. This book discusses recent advances in child and adolescent health with research findings to be published in the year 2012. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
