The International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia is the only journal publishing original articles devoted exclusively to obstetric
anesthesia and bringing together all three of its principal components; anesthesia care for operative delivery and the perioperative
period, pain relief in labour and care of the critically ill obstetric patient.
Original research (both clinical
and laboratory), short reports and case reports will be considered.
The journal also publishes invited review articles and
debates on topical and controversial subjects in the area of obstetric anesthesia.
Articles on related topics such as perinatal
physiology and pharmacology and all subjects of importance to obstetric anaesthetists/anesthesiologists are also welcome.
The journal is peer-reviewed by international experts. Scholarship is stressed to include the focus on discovery, application of
knowledge across fields, and informing the medical community. Through the peer-review process, we hope to attest to the quality of scholarships
and guide the Journal to extend and transform knowledge in this important and expanding area.
