Nick Brown appointed Archives of Disease in Childhood Editor in Chief

Professor Neena Modi: “Nick Brown is a strong advocate for child health at home and abroad and ADC is in expert editorial hands.”

A Fellow of the RCPCH and British Association of Perinatal Medicine, Nick's UK clinical base is in Salisbury. He is the author of over 60 peer reviewed publications, and for the past 25 years, he has had a parallel career in academic international health and has lived and worked in Sudan, Afghanistan, Papua New Guinea, India and Pakistan, says the publisher.

He has a long term academic affiliation with the Aga Khan University in Karachi where he teaches epidemiology, biostatistics and research methodology and is involved in several studies in areas including child pneumonia, rheumatic heart disease, thalassaemia, child protection and early child development.

His clinical interests include infectious diseases, neonatology and cardiology. He has been the college tutor for 12 years and the Salisbury paediatric departmental training programme has been recognised nationally.

Nick has worked with ADC as an associate editor for 10 years and as commissioning editor for the Global Child Health section since 2009. His vision is to enhance child health through training, advocacy, and the promotion and dissemination of high quality research, that can influence policy, and to do all this "with passion, wit and flavour".

He takes up his new post on 1 October 2017.

Responding to the appointment, Professor Neena Modi, President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health said: "Nick Brown is a strong advocate for child health at home and abroad and ADC is in expert editorial hands. The wide remit of the journal of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health requires a focus on all aspects of child health, a challenge to which Nick will rise given his wealth of experience."

Allison Lang, Publishing Director at BMJ, said: " We are delighted to appoint Nick Brown to lead one of BMJ's most influential specialist journals. Nick brings a wealth of experience and shares our vision for advancing the scientific and international reputation of the journal, and growing its relevance to healthcare professionals worldwide. I'd also like to thank the previous editor in chief Mark Beattie and interim editor in chief Martin Ward Platt, for their commitment, expertise and enthusiasm over the past years."
