Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology (PAG) is a specialized field that focuses on the reproductive health of children and young adults. It deals with concerns related to diagnosing, managing, and treating gynaecological issues in children, such as congenital anomalies, reproductive tract malformations, and disorders of sexual development. Other specific conditions that may occur in young patients include inflammation of the vulva and vagina, early onset of puberty, delayed puberty, and others. In adolescence, menstrual disorders like irregular periods, heavy or prolonged bleeding, or absence of menstruation are common. Disorders like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, contraception, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), teenage pregnancy, ovarian disorders and fertility preservation, intersex issues, abortions, psychosomatics, paediatric and adolescent reproductive malignancies also require careful investigation and treatment. Understanding these areas helps medical professionals address the specific needs of this patient population and promote their overall well-being.
The scientists involved in these fields may include gynaecologists, paediatricians, paediatric surgeons, paediatric urologists, paediatric or adult endocrinologists, clinical geneticists and psychologists, and other medical experts specializing in reproductive health.
As our knowledge expands and our PAG practice improves, there is a need for a specific scientific journal, dedicated to PAG, in order to host specific scientific information, helpful for those interested in and practicing in this area of specific interest.
The Hellenic Society of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology (HellenicPAG-HSPAG) presents its official journal, established in collaboration with the Journal of Clinical Medicine. Our goal is to serve as a hub for scientists and contribute to the advancement of knowledge and understanding in the field of paediatric and adolescent gynaecology.
The Hellenic Society of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology (HellenicPAG) and the Journal of Clinical Medicine offer the opportunity to publish in a PubMed journal with a high impact factor. Members of any National Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology Society worldwide receive discounted publication fees. Certified IFEPAG fellows receive even greater discounts. This journal primarily accepts reviews, metanalyses, and original research studies, belonging to the field of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology. However, case reports that present significant and practice-changing cases will also be considered for publication.
This journal aims to become a useful tool and a referral platform for PAG practitioners around the world. Publishing in this journal not only increases the visibility of your scientific work but also contributes to improving the practice of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology and promotes networking among practitioners.
