Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to present you the third issue of Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association (J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc) in the publishing year of 2019. We have the policy of Open Access publications. Open access (also known as open-access publishing and free online scholarship) is an ongoing publication practice which differs in the way traditional methods of publishing papers to the public get submitted, reviewed, authenticated and finally published. It proposes a new business model for academic publishing that enables immediate, worldwide, barrier-free, open access to the full text of research articles for the best interests of the scientific community.

Some important tips and clues were given by me with every issues. As the field of medicine becomes more competitive some may feel that research is becoming a compulsory component of the training. Research learning outcomes are essential for OB&GYN specialist training programs. The process of undertaking a research project teaches trainees valuable lessons in reading and critically appraising research literature, creating a hypothesis, understanding ethical issues in research, learning about data acquisition and cleaning, and data analysis. We have a good platform that encouraging young researcher for writing and publishing their work in our journal.

For the young researchers, to actually enjoy training and be productive, follow the tips described below.
1. Make an outline of your plans and goals
2. Work on your time-management skills
3. Combine both intellectual and physical work
4. Ask your chiefs or mentors and residents
5. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes
6. Read papers/articles and do not stick to old textbook
7. Be a reviewer (we have an open invitation for you)
8. Write papers and ask help from someone who has experiences for this.

Writing reviews is a good way to get published - especially for people who are in the early stages of their career. It’s a chance to practice at writing a piece for publication, and get a free copy of a book that you want. We publish more reviews than papers so we’re constantly looking for reviewers. Some journals, including ours, publish replies to papers that have been published in the same journal. Editors quite like to publish replies to previous papers because it stimulates discussion.

Dear Researchers,

We have a very interesting and astonishing issue. There are several well written manuscript from all over the world. I would like to wish a successful working period to all colleagues. We are looking forward to receiving your valuable submissions and thank you in advance for your contributions.

Have a nice and productive academic year!

Best regards,
