Dear Colleagues,

After our inclusion in the PubMed the manuscript submissions to our journal trippled. I would like to thank to all the scientists who gives us the oppurtunity to evaluate their work. The visibility and fulltext download of our articles exceeded 1500 during the first half of September 2017. This year our journal received second highest number of submissions in its history. In 2013 we have received 228 manuscripts and in 2017 we have received 200 manuscripts. The manuscripts submitted are mostly in the field of Perinatology followed by Reproductive Endocrinology and infertility, Gynecological Oncology and Urogynecology.

Our acceptance rate was 26% in 2017. We try to be constructive and provide feedback to the authors about possible sources of bias, methodological flaws, reporting errors and we encourage the authors to write the limitations of their studies. I think this provides an area of scientific discussion among colleagues and improve experience of every one of us even the manuscripts are not accepted. We would like to thank to our 228 reviewers and our Editorial Board for donating their time to our journal just for improvement of science. In 2018 we are planning a series of Systematic Review and Metaanalysis courses for encouraging scientists to evaluate the literatüre and provide a highest level of scientific information for the readers of our journal. Please save the date of first course on 17-18 February 2018. Those who wants to join this team can mail to me.

I wish all the best in the new year.
