Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to introduce the second issue of the “Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association (J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc)” in the publishing year of 2020.

As you know, modeling and simulation is breaking away from traditional uses (e.g., aviation and research) and emerging as an increasingly important tool for education and training. Educational simulation focuses learners on specific facts, concepts, or applications of the system. Simulators are useful tools in providing powerful learning experiences. Integrating simulations into an educational program is a perfect opportunity to put theory into practice through role playing, Here you will read a paper investigating the suitability of an in-house conisation simulator for teaching medical students the practical performance of conisation.

You will also read an interesting paper investigating whether testis magnetic resonance spectroscopy predicts the success or failure of micro-dissection testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE) in patients with non-obstructive azoospermia. As you appreciate, the development of a non-invasive imaging technique which can identify infertile men with non-obstructive azoospermia where a successful sperm retrieval outcome in micro-TESE can be expected is of great clinical significance.

Also you will get the occasion to read a review examining the current literature to find if there was any possible benefit of endometrial scratching.

Dear reviewers and researchers,

As editors we are in function to provide scholarly communication. As a team our aim is to elevate our journal and continue to nurture its growth through every stage of the publishing process. Thank you for your valuable support.

Best regards,

Prof. Cihat Ünlü, M.D.
