The International Society for Evidence-Based Neonatology (EBNEO) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting evidence-based neonatal practice. Our social media editors continuously curate the neonatal clinical research literature and identify highlights for real-time dissemination on popular platforms. Select publications are then summarized and made available on our website as free, structured reviews. Have questions or insights on articles we've shared? Join the growing conversation on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn!


EBNEO Article of the Month

Each month, our Social Media Editors nominate articles that were selected as #ebneoalerts for consideration as the EBNEO Article of the Month.

We then ask you, the international #NeoEBM community, to select the winner by casting your vote on our website. See prior winners and check in at the beginning of each month to vote: ebneo.org/vote 

Congratulations to March's winner: The SAIL Trial by Haresh Kirpalani et al. (JAMA 2019)
