Studies in Family Planning

Studies in Family Planning is a peer-reviewed, international journal publishing public health, social science, and biomedical research on sexual and reproductive health, fertility, and family planning, with a primary focus on developing countries. Each issue contains original research articles, reports, commentaries, data papers, and book reviews. Studies in Family Planning is published quarterly.

Call for papers: Data Papers. Studies in Family Planning is pleased to announce a new article type to be included in the journal beginning in 2017. Unlike an Original Research Article reporting hypotheses and conclusions, a Data Paper describes a particular dataset (or group of datasets), including details on study design, such as sampling methods. The Data Paper aims to bring the existence of the data to the attention of the scholarly community, and may serve as a useful reference for future publications drawing on the data set. Your complete dataset should be openly available or available upon request. See our updated Author Guidelines for submission guidelines.
