The Hong Kong Journal of Paediatrics (HKJP) is a joint publication of Hong Kong College of Paediatricians (HKCPaed) and Hong Kong Paediatric Society (HKPS). The HKJP publishes original research papers, review articles, case reports, editorials, commentaries, letters to the editor and conference proceedings.

The first issue of the Journal was published in 1984. From 1984 to 1995, it was the official journal of the Hong Kong Paediatric Society, and published twice a year.

The Hong Kong College of Paediatricians was founded in 1991 with the primary objective to accredit and organize training programmes for paediatricians, to certify specialists in the discipline and to ensure a high standard of paediatric practice for the community. In 1996, the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians and the Hong Kong Paediatric Society joined forces to produce a single paediatric journal for Hong Kong, entitled "Hong Kong Journal of Paediatrics - new series".

Commencing 2002, the Journal has been published four times a year. The Journal is indexed in EMBASE/Excerpta Medica, Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and Scopus.
