In previous editorials, I've written about PAG and science, discussed the value of case reports, and addressed the maturation of the field of pediatric and adolescent gynecology.

The data that I review includes not only the number of submitted manuscripts, but also other data, including the mean time from submission to first decision, which we try to keep less than 30 days; the number and percentage of submissions that are rejected as being out of JPAG's scope of focus; and the overall acceptance rate for manuscripts.
