In the editorial of the present issue of the Hellenic Journal I have the pleasure to announce that our title has been accepted in Scopus.

Scopus is Elsevier’s abstract and citation database that covers nearly 36,377 titles from more than 11.000 publishers. This means that HJOG`s forthcoming articles that will be automatically cited in Scopus will gain appropriate coverage that will ensure higher visibility and citation potential. Taking into consideration these changes I would like once again to welcome researchers to submit their work in HJOG in order to help increase its scientific impact and become a leading international journal.

In the present issue Stavros et al investigated the presence of miRNA polymorphisms on recurrent pregnancy loss in a large cohort of 200 women and compared them with 200 women that were recruited as controls. The study is of special interest as it may serve as a pilot that will help establish a personalized treatment in women with recurrent pregnancy loss.

Katzeni and co-authors investigated factors affecting breastfeeding in rural and urban populations. Researchers observed the importance of early rooming in and mention that co-operation of physicians and midwifes is of paramount importance as it may increase the duration of breastfeeding which promotes stress reduction and positive feelings in the nursing mother and unmatched by any other food nutrients to the neonate.
