PediTools published in JMIR

"PediTools Electronic Growth Chart Calculators: Applications in Clinical Care, Research, and Quality Improvement" has been published in the Jan 30, 2020 issue of the Journal of Medical Internet Research.

The article describes not only the deployment of the PediTools website, but also some applications of using large-scale growth anthropometric calculations for clinical research and quality improvement.

I chose JMIR because it's an Open Access journal — I wanted to make sure that it was available to everyone, and not just those lucky enough to have an institutional journal subscription. This does result in additional costs to the authors (the
article processing fee was $2,500), but I really believe that science should be open to benefit as many as possible.
