Could Your Image be Potential Cover Art for Obstetrics & Gynecology?
Shawna Byrd, Production Editor
Shawna Byrd, Production Editor
Here at Obstetrics & Gynecology, we are continually on a quest for potential cover art. What type of image might we consider as cover art? Our December 2013 cover art is an excellent example. The Abruption, by Ryan M. McAdams, MD, is not only visually appealing with vibrant colors and swirling movement of paint brush strokes, it also depicts a topic that is relevant to the articles included in our journal. (See to read a poem by Dr. McAdams and to view a larger image of the painting.)
The editors may also select a piece of art from the issue to be placed on the cover of the journal. This art may consist of informative illustrations, diagrams, or clinical images. Authors who believe that their submission includes potential cover art should note this fact in their cover letter.
We are open to all genres of art. Photographs, illustrations, paintings, micrographs, and more are accepted as long as the image has visual interest and tells an interesting story related to obstetrics and gynecology. Submit your art for consideration today!
