Information for Authors
The Singapore Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology is the official Journal of the Singapore Obstetrical & Gynaecological Society. It provides a medium for the publication of original articles related to Obstetrics & Gynaecology in all its aspects. It also provides a source for continuing medical education for both the members of the Society and those members of the medical profession of Singapore who have an interest in any part of the discipline.
The Journal will consider for publication original articles relating to clinical practice in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and to research, whether basic or applied, in fields relating to the subject. Besides original articles, the Journal will publish case reports, review articles, book reviews and letters to the editor.
Articles are accepted on the understanding that they have not been accepted or submitted simultaneously elsewhere in this or a similar form, and that a substantial part of the material contained in the article has not been published elsewhere. In the matter of multiple publications please see the British Medical Journal 1984; 288:52. For guidelines, on authorship please see the British Medical Journal 1985; 291:722. It is assumed by the Editor and his committee that articles are submitted with the approval of all co-authors involved. The opinions expressed in any paper are those of the authors and the Editorial Committee does not necessarily agree with them, nor are they unless explicitly stated the official views of the Singapore Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society.
The editor reserves the right to make literary changes to the article to fit the house style of the Journal. If significant changes are necessary they will be shown to the authors before publication. To avoid delays, the authors are advised to pay close attention to the following requirements. Articles that do not follow the Journal instructions, particularly in matters relating to references, including their accuracy, will have to be returned unviewed and cannot be considered until the necessary changes have been made.
The Singapore Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology from March 1993 onwards will follow the Vancouver style of Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals. These guidelines were laid down by an International Committee of Medical Journal Editors. Authors are advised to follow closely these guidelines for preparing manuscripts.
