New and Exciting at Iowa, Online Publishing


The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Iowa would like to announce the online publishing of Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology (POG), Volume 2(3), 2012. Our journal is a forum for obstetrics and gynecology practice internationally as evidenced by the piece by Dr. Rene Genadry on fistulas in the developing world and case reports from India and Turkey. We also strive to showcase the world class care that is provided by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa.

Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology is published as an online journal and is supported by the library of the University of Iowa. In these issues you will find full length articles, interesting clinical cases, information about the clinical and research divisions in the Department, and recent publications from faculty members. We encourage you to review these issues and to submit manuscripts for online publication. Our journal is peer-reviewed with the eventual goal of being 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.

We are currently soliciting articles for an upcoming issue on pre-eclampsia, which is guest edited by Dr. Mark Santillian. Please contact the Managing Editor, Susan Schwartz-Rogers ( if you have an article that is appropriate for this issue.
