The first of three ABOG MOC II reading lists for 2014 is available today on the Obstetrics & Gynecology web site. Maintenance of Certification (MOC) is a program of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG).
We’ve covered the ABOG MOC II reading lists in three previous blog posts: November 30, 2012, December 5, 2012, and July 8, 2013, and I strongly encourage you to revisit this material. Note that content on the reading list comes from several different journals—not just Obstetrics & Gynecology. Therefore, your ability to access content on the other journals’ web sites depends on whether you are a subscriber (note that you may be able to gain access via your institution). In the reading list available on our site, the status of each article is indicated as “Free to ACOG Fellows,” “Full text open access,” or “Subscription only.”
For ACOG Fellows seeking to read content available from Obstetrics & Gynecology, note that a subscription to our journal is included as part of your membership benefits. There are two ways that you may access Obstetrics & Gynecology content:
  1. First-time visitors to must activate their subscription in order to read most full-text articles in Obstetrics & Gynecology. Instructions on this activation process are available here. After your subscription is activated, you will be able to log in to to read the articles.
  2. To obtain Obstetrics & Gynecology content, log in to and then click the “Green Journal” link in the left menu bar. Please note that your user name and password on the ACOG web site are not the same as those for the journal web site.
Look for the next two reading lists to come out in May 2014 and August 2014.
