Slovenska pediatrija is a blind peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, and clinical case reports in all areas of paediatrics and school medicine and areas of medicine and research closely related to them. Slovenska pediatrija has been published regularly since 1994 with four issues per year.

The journal seeks to publish high quality original articles, case reports and guidelines that are applicable to everyday practice and research articles that aim to expand the knowledge and recent advances in the field of health care in neonates, children and adolescents and closely related fields of medicine, research and epidemiology. Slovenska pediatrija also publishes letters to the editor with the purpose of giving the readers the opportunity to comment and have an input to the covered topics. Reports from expert meetings and regular meeting of the Extended expert council for the pediatric committee are also regularly published.

Although aimed primarily on Slovenian readers, the Journal strives to expand to other non-Slovenian speaking readers. Therefore most written contributions are published in Slovene, but contributions in English are also readily accepted.
