MJOG : Journal


The Malaysian Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is published three times a year i.e. between the periods January - June, June (Supplementary) and July - December. It is the official journal of the Obstetrical & Gynaecological Society of Malaysia. However, all articles which are published, including editorials, letters and book reviews represent the opinion of the authors and are not necessarily those of the Obstetrics and Gynaecological Society of Malaysia. The set of illustrations for each publication will have a theme from the various subspecialities in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, namely; Fetomaternal, Oncology, Infertility, Urogynaecology, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Menopause and Adolescent Gynaecology. The subscription rates are as follows: Price per copy RM15.00 or RM30.00 per annum.

The Editorial Board has submitted the necessary documents to Scopus based in Amsterdam, Netherlands which is responsible for reviewing applications from journals all over the world for the purpose of being indexed. We should be able to know by early 2009 whether they have accepted our journal to be indexed.
