With the aim of advancing the practice of dentistry in the region, the journal covers all fields related to the practice of modern-day dentistry as well as oral medicine, surgery and pathology. This is done through the circulation of information and research findings in the above fields.
Singapore Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
A journal with a long history that begun as the Bulletin of the Kandang Kerbau Hospital (KKH) for Women in 1956, it is the official publication of the Singapore Obstetrical & Gynaecological Society. It was formerly known as the Proceedings of the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society until it changed to its current name in 1977. The reason for the change was to highlight the expansion of the journal’s role beyond reporting the academic activities of the society. Today, the journal hosts original articles covering all aspects of obstetrics and gynaecology, catering to both members of the society and medical professionals Singapore and Asia.
Articles from this journal can only be found on the Society’s site, but note that older issues of the journal are not available for viewing or download.
