Dear Colleagues;

Medical Journal of Bakirkoy (BMJ), which is the periodic scientific publication of University of Health Sciences Türkiye, İstanbul Bakırköy Dr. Sadi Konuk Training and Research Hospital, has been published uninterruptedly for 20 years. When we look back, we can see that our Journal has achieved this success with your hard work and valuable contributions. First of all, we congratulate and thank everyone who contributed to this success. We would also like to express our gratitude to all previous editors and editorial boards who contributed to the development of this journal.

Our journal is currently indexed within the scope of ESCI, as well as many important national and international indexes. Our primary goal is to move this journal to higher indexes (SCI and SCIE). The efforts and work started in the past for this purpose will continue to increase and intensify in the future. In order to achieve this goal, we are trying to fulfill our responsibilities as the editorial board, with your support.

We would like to share with you the excitement and happiness of publishing the first issue of our Journal in 2024. In this issue, as in the past, we tried to present you with a journal that is very interesting and full of studies that you can follow with interest. We hope you enjoy this new issue. We also believe that you will choose us for your high quality new research and studies in our future issues, as in the past.

We would like to thank all authors and scientists for your high interest and contributions to our journal.
