In the second strategy, journal citations from American Academy of Pediatrics' (AAP) policy statements from 1994 to 1996 found in the AAP policy reference guide were collected.
In the third strategy, journal citations from the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) statements from 1990 to 1997 found in Pediatrics and Child Health were collected.
Topics related to tertiary neonatology, nonphysician health care professionals, public health policy, ethics, and non-journal citation sources were excluded.

Journal citations in CDSR with no pediatric subjects and citation of AAP policy statements cited in AAP policy statements were excluded. (...)
