With this issue, we have published the third issue of this year.
We are pleased to observe that our journal is getting better and reaching wider audiences every day and this increases our determination and enthusiasm to work.
Turkish Journal of Surgery is one of the reference surgical journals in our country and it has taken an organizational structure with its previous experience. It is followed by our colleagues in other countries of the world, particularly in European and Asian countries, as well as those in our country and they submit articles to be published.
In this issue, we have published research articles and case reports from different areas of General Surgery. In the articles published in the journal, clinical studies have been highlighted.
In the next issues, we will continue to publish the guiding and innovative studies of our colleagues in their fields.
Our aim is to be one of the journals which are scanned and followed in international indices. We will accomplish this goal with the support and contributions of our colleagues.
I offer my gratitude and thanks to all those who have contributed.
