About BJOG

BJOG is an editorially independent publication owned by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG). The Journal publishes original, peer-reviewed work in all areas of obstetrics and gynaecology, including contraception, urogynaecology, fertility, oncology and clinical practice.

In January 1902 the first issue of The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the British Empire was published, which led with a most fitting and insightful article written by Dr Hart, who called to make the twentieth century one of the greatest in the history of obstetrics. Since then BJOG has published papers on an incredible range of issues, and we are proud to have been there to record every discovery and report each new finding. After 100 years BJOG is still going strong and we hope there are many more to come.

Our friendly team works closely with our publishers, Wiley-Blackwell, to ensure we publish the highest quality of medical research in women’s health worldwide. BJOG has 13 issues a year, 12 monthly issues and one themed issue published in January.
