Overview


Prenatal Diagnosis is the Official Journal of the International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis.


Aims and Scope


Prenatal Diagnosis welcomes submissions in all aspects of prenatal diagnosis with a particular focus on areas in which molecular biology and genetics interface with prenatal care and therapy, encompassing:

  • prenatal cytogenetics, including microarrays

  • prenatal molecular genetics, including whole exome and whole genome sequencing

  • prenatal diagnosis of single gene disorders, including errors of metabolism

  • fetal transcriptome, proteome and metabolome studies

  • noninvasive testng using fetal cells and cell-free DNA and RNA in maternal blood

  • fetal and placental development and pathology

  • fetal therapy

  • outcome studies of prenatally diagnosed conditions

  • preconceptual, preimplantation and prenatal genetic counseling

  • preimplantation genetics diagnosis and screening

  • psychosocial, legal, ethical and economic aspects of prenatal testing


The overriding criteria for publication are scientific merit, originality, and interest to a multidisciplinary audience.

The Journal may be viewed and all manuscripts should be submitted online at www.prenataldiagnosisjournal.org
