SAGE partners with the Society for Gynecologic Investigation

October 23, 2006

SAGE Publications is pleased to announce it will begin publishing the journal Reproductive Sciences on behalf of the Society for Gynecologic Investigation (SGI). Formerly known as the Journal of the Society for Gynecologic Investigation, the publication will move from Elsevier to SAGE in January 2007. A new cover design will debut with the first SAGE issue.

Reproductive Sciences publishes significant scientific papers advancing knowledge in all aspects of reproductive biology, including the disciplines of perinatology, obstetrics, gynecology, reproductive endocrinology, infertility, gynecologic oncology, and related fields. The journal's impact factor is 2.887, and it is ranked 8 out of 57 obstetrics and gynecology journals in the 2005 Thomson Scientific Journal Citation Reports.

"We're pleased to add this highly regarded publication in women's health to our expanding collection of science and medical journals, many of which we publish on behalf of prestigious societies like SGI," commented Dr. Peter Binfield, SAGE Journals Editorial Director. "SAGE offers high quality publishing services and is well equipped to broaden the reach and impact of the journals we publish."

"The SGI chose SAGE to publish Reproductive Sciences after an extensive search," added Linda Giudice, SGI President, 2006-2007. "SAGE's publishing experience, in healthcare in particular, as well as its editorial staff, all contributed to our decision. We anticipate a great partnership in the future to publish research focused on women's health and the reproductive sciences."

New ISSN numbers have been assigned due to the title change, and they are 1933-7191 for print and 1933-7205 for online. Institutional subscriptions will include Combined (Print and E-access), E-access, or Print Only options. Online access will not be disrupted during the transition to SAGE, and the journal will be available electronically on SAGE Journals Online prior to the first print issue in January 2007. The journal's new web site will be
