Which of the Reporting Guidelines Pertain to My Manuscript?
Denise Shields, Manuscript Editor
Denise Shields, Manuscript Editor
 
As stated in our Instructions for Authors, Obstetrics & Gynecology supports "Responsible reporting of research studies, which includes a complete, transparent, accurate and timely account of what was done and what was found during a research study..." To that end, Obstetrics & Gynecology requires that manuscripts follow standardized reporting guidelines. These guidelines are even valuable while a study is being conducted.
 
It is important to remember that the checklists associated with these guidelines need to be submitted with your manuscript, especially for randomized controlled trials. We ask that authors use the following guidelines when drafting their manuscripts:

Indicate on the checklist the page numbers in the manuscript where the required information is provided. For the MOOSE guideline, describe where the required information is provided in your cover letter.

Please address all items recommended by the guidelines. Where this is not possible, please provide an explanation in the text to give a transparent account of your study. If there are items on the checklist you cannot attest to, please provide an explanation in your cover letter.

For more information, see our Instructions for Authors or send us an e-mail at obgyn@greenjournal.org.
