Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology is an open-access peer-reviewed journal of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Iowa.
Current Issue: Volume 4, Issue 1 (July 2014)
Welcome to the fourth volume of Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our journal is a forum for obstetrics, gynecology and women’s health internationally.
Our journal is peer-reviewed, and we invite your interest and future submissions. Our eventual goal is to become indexed in Medline, so your support in submitting the most interesting clinical studies, reviews and basic research manuscripts is particularly valuable as we move forward. We see one of the main goals of our journal to be providing a forum for the publishing of case reports.
On behalf of the Editorial Board, Kristina Thiel, Scientific Associate Editor and Susan Schwartz-Rogers, Managing Editor, welcome to Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology! We hope you enjoy our current issue.
Looking ahead our next issue will be guest edited by Colleen K. Stockdale highlighting Lower genital tract conditions and areas that are commonly overlooked in the care of women.
