Bezmialem Science 2021;9(4):0-0

Dear readers,

We are with you again in the 4th issue of 2021 of our journal. In these days when we have returned to face-to-face training with the beginning of autumn, our scientific studies, academic activities and partially congresses have entered our agenda in a new format in the new normalization process. I would like to give you the good news that the number and quality of articles in our journal have reached the highest level this year. Due to increasing number of articles and in order to increase our quality of our journal, we decided to innovate in our system with our publisher company and we closed our old system as of the end of August, but we continued to evaluate the articles in the system from our old site. We also started to accept submission of articles in the new system. Every innovation brings with it some challenges. This bilateral situation will continue until the new year and if our company agreement is renewed in the new year, we will continue with this system.

In this issue, I would like to talk about our cover image and selected article; “Evaluation of Optical Radiation from Visual Pathways with Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Patients with Neurofibromatosis Type 1” by Dilek Hacer Çeşme.

We are very happy to be together once again with beautiful topics in this issue: “Evaluation of Optical Radiation from Visual Pathways with Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Patients with Neurofibromatosis Type 1” by Dilek Hacer Cesme, “The Status of Iron Stores in the Women with Beta Thalassemia Minor” by Karaaslan et al., “Longitudinal Changes in the Eating Habits of Patients with Cancer Receiving Palliative Care” by Çeltek et al., “Relationships among Increasing Age, Sexual Dysfunction, and Sexual Quality of Life in Married Women of Reproductive Age” by Zobar ve Kahyaoğlu Süt., and “Effects of Oral Alprazolam and Oral Tramadol on Anxiety and Analgesia in Patients Undergoing Breast Cancer Surgery” by Ayan and Meynacı Köksal are among our prominent articles.

As the year 2022 approaches, I would like to state that we expect your articles on clinical studies and experimental studies. Since we are a university journal and a multidisciplinary journal, I am announcing in advance that technology-based articles are also on our agenda next year, that we will create our additional issue with a focus on technology, and if you have existing patents, there will be an opportunity to publish them. Our country has to increase its targets and start the national health industry move in this process that the world has come to. Our university has a pioneering mission in this field. With this awareness, I would like to emphasize the importance of the subject once again.

As it is known, each issue of our journal requires a lot of effort. I would like to thank my associate editors for their hard work. I wish you all the best to meet new goals and successes in the New Year with our referees, publisher and you, our esteemed readers.

Kind regards

Prof. Dr. Adem AKÇAKAYA
