The Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics & Gynecology (JPOG) is the official Journal of the International Society of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ISPOG) and brings together information in the field of psychosomatic medicine related to obstetrics and gynecology. It covers the many disciplines involved such as gynecology, gynecological oncology, nursing and nurse midwifery, obstetrics, perinatology, psychiatry, psychology and reproductive endocrinology. It therefore publishes clinical and basic information of multidisciplinary interest.
JPOG was founded in 1982 in order to provide a scientific forum for obstetricians, gynecologists, psychiatrists and psychologists, academic health professionals as well as for all those who are interested in the psychosocial and psychosomatic aspects of women’s health. Another of its aims is to stimulate obstetricians and gynecologists to pay more attention to this very important facet of their profession.
JPOG is published quarterly, the issues appearing in March, June, September and December, and contains sections for editorials, original articles, review articles, opinions, short communications, letters to the editor, book reviews, and announcements.
