In January 2018 BJOG will be publishing a special themed issue on Stillbirth.


We are interested in receiving original research papers from all disciplines, particularly on interventions aiming to prevent stillbirth and on improving care following stillbirth. We welcome a range of designs and formats, from basic science and epidemiology to policy initiatives, clinical trials, systematic reviews and studies investigating bereavement care.

This issue will be led by Dr Dimitrios Siassakos, Dr Donald Dudley, Dr Bob Silver and guest Editors, including a lay Editor.

Why submit?

• Disseminate your results worldwide
• 50% increase in citations for themed issue papers
• High scientific and editorial standards
• Papers published online before inclusion in the issue

How to submit
Go to
Please include your interest in this themed issue in your cover letter and submission form, and check our i
nstructions for authors.

Being included in the issue does not delay online publication; if your paper is accepted it will be published online (with a DOI) as soon as it is ready, and then published in print in January 2018. If inclusion in the themed issue will cause a considerable difference between the online and print publication date then we will publish your paper in a regular issue of BJOG.

If you have any queries please contact the BJOG editorial office:

Submission deadline: 30 April 2017
