Publications: What's New in the Green Journal?

Obstetrics & Gynecology (the Green Journal) has a mission of publishing excellent research articles with a clinical focus. In addition, we strive to provide our readers with the latest and greatest content.

Earn CME with Opioid Epidemic Articles

Many state licensing boards now require training on opioid prescribing and substance abuse. The July 2017 issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology features four articles on opioid use with associated CME quizzes. Successful completion of each quiz constitutes one hour of CME.

New Web Design Allows for Easy Viewing Across all Your Devices

All features of the Green Journal website that readers can access using a computer are now easily accessible via any mobile device. Using responsive design, our webpages now adapt to whatever screen size or web browser is being used.

New Article Types Debuted in 2017

Obstetrics & Gynecology now features two new article types:


  • Clinical Quality and Practice debuted in January 2017 and is a full-length report of the implementation of research findings into clinical practice, assessment of the effect of a change in clinical practice methods on clinical outcomes, or a focused description of a quality improvement or quality assessment program.
  • Clinical Conundrums debuted in July 2017 and focuses on a specific clinical question that the ob-gyns face in day-to-day clinical practice for which evidence for diagnosis, management options, or prognosis are deficient. The intent of the Clinical Conundrums feature is not to do an exhaustive review of a topic but instead concentrate on one query that has no straightforward answer (ie, a clinical conundrum) and provide a reasonable course of action.

Do You Have a Personal Story of Bias in the Workplace?

Obstetrics & Gynecology is planning to publish a special section on biases encountered by ob-gyns in the workplace. Examples of biases that may be considered include, but are not limited to: race, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender representation, age, and ableism. Additional forms of biases may be suggested for consideration.

The editors are seeking personal stories from our readers who have faced or are currently facing bias in their roles as practicing physicians. There are no guidelines for these stories.
