Group of Editors of Pediatric Journals of the South Cone

The Group of Editors of Pediatric Journals of the South Cone is composed of editors of official scientific publications of the pediatric societies from  Argentina, BoliviaBrazilChileParaguay and Uruguay.

The Group was formed in 1996 and continually develops a partnership for technical and political cooperation aiming at scientific integration and diffusion of knowledge of the pediatric community within these countries, which comprises around 30,000 colleagues. 

One of the most fruitful achievements of the Group of Editors of Pediatric Journals of the South Cone is the publication of the 10 best original articles, selected from the scientific production published each year by these six journals. In the most recent meeting, held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 31st October and 1st November 2019, the Group selected the two most relevant articles of the year 2018 from each journal.

Two of these articles were originally published in Jornal de Pediatria and are available below:
