New Summary Format for College Practice Documents in the Green Journal

New Green Journal FormatBeginning in September 2015, ACOG members and Green Journal subscribers will see a new 1-2 page Summary for most of ACOG’s practice documents in the print edition of the Green Journal as well as online at www.GreenJournal.org. Each Summary contains key sections pulled from the corresponding full document.

Why a New Summary Format for Practice Documents?
Key advantages of the new Summary format include the following:

  • Allows for the timely publication of practice documents in the Green Journal
  • Provides a condensed version of key information that is pulled from each document
  • Offers readers a combination of print and online formats for practice documents to meet the needs and preferences of readers and ACOG members

You may read more about the new Summary format in a Green Journal Editorial from Dr. Nancy Chescheir, Editor-in-Chief of Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Dr. Christopher Zahn, ACOG Vice President of Practice Activities: A New Approach to Delivering Important Publications From the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists

Where Can I View Examples of the New Summary Format?
The Summary appears for the first time for each of the documents published in the September edition of the Green Journal. View the Summary for each at the links below (ACOG members and Green Journal subscribers only):

You’ll also find a handy quick reference chart below on ways you may access practice documents in print, online, and via mobile apps.

Where Can I Read the Full Text?
Full-text versions of the practice documents are available only in digital format for Practice Bulletins, Committee Opinions, Obstetric Care Consensus documents and Technology Assessments; view the full documents online at www.GreenJournal.org, in the Green Journal iPad app, or at www.acog.org.
