Kwon: Obstetrics & Gynecology Science, on the runway
Congratulations are in order for the rebirth of our society's official journal as "Obstetrics & Gynecology Science." Moreover, I am greatly honored and privileged to have been granted an opportunity through the naming contest to make a small contribution in this historical transition.
When a child is born, the very first thing the parents do is name the child. Just as in placing a cornerstone in a building, naming bestows true meaning and hope to its existence. A name must incorporate unique character, values, expectations, and future perspective.
Why "Obstetrics & Gynecology Science"?
In this age of globalization, hope for our journal to make a leap to become international was expressed by removing the word "Korean." "Science" may sound somewhat basic to some of us but it actually has a comprehensive meaning. Originating from the Latin scientia meaning "knowledge," in olden days, reliable explanations about the phenomena of the universe were termed as science which, broadened to encompass the pursuit of knowledge. Therefore, the name "Obstetrics & Gynecology Science" contains the aspiration for our journal to be a top-quality Science Citation Information enlisted journal covering a various range of research findings bringing better insights to obstetrics and gynecology and related subjects.
With genuine commitment from the members of our society, I am confident that "Obstetrics & Gynecology Science" will serve as a worldwide arena where pursuit of knowledge in the fields of Obstetrics and Gynecology is shared and exchanged, thereby, providing an important basis to further improvement of women's health.
