  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • 150 Year Anniversary

    This year, the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics celebrates its 150th anniversary of publication.

Now, the journal publishes widely in English and is available online--something it’s creators probably could not even have imagined 150 years ago.
