The Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition (JPGN) has been at the forefront of many of the seminal advances into research on infectious diarrhea. In 1982, the first article of the JPGN was entitled “Oral Therapy for Dehydration in Diarrheal Diseases as a Global Problem” and has set the scene for several thousand subsequent articles. In his initial editorial, Finberg (1) posed several questions, which still have relevance 30 years later:

  1. When is oral rehydration not appropriate, if ever?

  2. What should be the composition of the oral solution and should there be more than one?

  3. Should recommended practice be different in lesser-developed countries from those in developed countries?

  4. Should the salts and glucose be prepackaged or should home supplies be used by instructed mothers?

  5. When should standard feedings be resumed?

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
