BMC Women’s Health is proud
to announce that it has reached and surpassed its 100th article
milestone. The journal, launched in 2001, continues to steadily attract
submissions, and publications
have risen by 50% in the last three years.
The journal has published a
number of high quality articles. A recent one to highlight is ‘Help-seeking behaviors for female sexual dysfunction: a
cross sectional study from Iran’ by Dr Mariam Vahdaninia and
colleagues which reports that, despite a high prevalence of female sexual
dysfunction in Iran, many women do not seek assistance for their problem. This
research indicates that there is a need to address the issue at both local and
national primary health
care services so as to improve women’s quality of life in this regard. The
article has already been accessed over 325 times since its publication in February.
BMC Women’s Health would like to
extend its thanks to Dr Vahdaninia and colleagues for their contribution to the
journal. This is Prof Montazeri’s 22nd publication in journals
