Aims & Scope

npj Women's Health considers all aspects of women's health throughout the life-course, including adolescent, sexual, reproductive, maternal/newborn, midlife, and geriatric care. We acknowledge that the need for women’s health research extends beyond issues predominantly experienced by cisgender women. As such, our scope includes transgender and non-binary individuals and their communities.

The journal covers a broad range of topics including but not limited to:

  • Chronic non-communicable diseases in women
  • Pregnancy care and maternal health outcomes
  • Reproductive health and infertility care
  • Gynecologic cancers and breast cancer, including diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship
  • Menopause and age-related conditions, including prevention and treatment strategies
  • Sexual health and reproductive rights
  • All aspects of gynecologic care and surgery
  • Women's mental health
  • Gender-based medicine and personalized healthcare
  • Women's health disparities and social determinants
  • Integrative and complementary approaches to women's health

The journal offers more choice to Nature Portfolio authors who are seeking a fully open-access and more inclusive platform for publishing their work. The journal is led by women's health experts who collaborate to cultivate high-quality research. As part of the npj Series, this journal focuses on fostering global partnerships with the research community and other Springer Nature journals.
