Dear Colleagues,

During these hard times of Coronavirus Pandemic, it was not possible to conduct our yearly National Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology. When things were starting to get better, third wave of the pandemic put life to a stop. Thus we continued meeting through online lectures and web seminars. Even though it was not ideal, we did everything we could do to teach and share knowledge.

We need to stand strong and positive as the pandemic will hopefully lessen its burden on the community. We hope that as vaccination rates go up, infection rates will go down. We are eagerly waiting for better days. As the saying goes, the night is darkest before dawn and thing look the worst before getting better. If all goes well the corona pandemic will be a bad memory in our minds soon enough.

We want to make a difference in the scientific world as the Turkish Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. We are looking forward to your valuable submissions to publish in our journal and so we can together explore medicine further.
