RECENT RESEARCH 12/04/2013 – 12/12/2013

This list of “recent research” should serve as a current awareness tool – informing those in our field of the research that the media is highlighting at the moment. Individual studies should always be placed in the larger context of the body of research on a particular topic. The list is broken up into "research" (studies appearing in peerreviewed, scholarly journals) and "other items" (government reports, new statistics, unpublished research, etc.). Each entry includes a link to a general news story or press release, followed by a citation and link to the study itself. Items are ordered in a naturally progressing manner -- those pertaining to pregnancy, then birth, then newborns, etc.
