Recruiting SASGOG Members as NEW Editors
for Pearls of Exxcellence Editorial Board
SASGOG is recruiting five new editors for the Pearls of Exxcellence Editorial Board. Terms are for two years, and will start after the SASGOG Annual Meeting in May.
If you are not familiar with the Pearls, please see http://www.exxcellence.org/pearls-of-exxcellence/list-of-pearls/. Members of the Editorial Board edit and review Pearls of Exxcellence manuscripts, ensure content of the posted material remains current, mentor junior authors in writing, and make editorial decisions and policy for the Pearls program. The Pearls program is a joint work by SASGOG and the Foundation for Excellence in Women’s Health. We anticipate the board will have phone conferences usually every other month this year...read more.
SASGOG is Writing its Second Book
Office Gynecology: A Case-Based Approach
Co-Editors David Chelmow, Nicole Karjane, Hope Ricciotti and Amy Young
Cambridge University Press
The book will contain approximately 100 cases summarizing office practice problems in gynecology. Each contribution will be organized as a brief case presentation followed by 2-4 pages (approximately 2000 words total) of discussion at a level appropriate for junior attending obstetrics and gynecology physicians. The book is a SASGOG project, will carry the SASGOG brand, and proceeds from the book will benefit SASGOG. Cases will be in the same format as the Acute and Emergency Care Gynecology: A Case-Based Approach book that so many of you wrote chapters for two years ago. Click HERE for the preliminary Table of Contents.
The application for author process is complete. There are 100 authors signed up. If you wish to be on a wait list in case chapters open up when final assignments go out, please contact Dr. David Chelmow at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate which sections you may be interested in writing for should there be an unexpected opening.
We anticipate mailing out final instructions and sample chapters late in January. Chapters will be due May 1, 2017. We anticipate the book being published early in 2018. Authors will receive a copy of the book.
