Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to introduce the third issue of the “Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association (J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc)” in the publishing year of 2022. This issue is consisted of eight articles and one review that we hope you will read with interest. Here we share some of our favorite articles that were published in this issue of the journal.

Proper diet and the maintenance of adequate nutritional status play an important role in reproductive function. In recent years, scientific research has increasingly focused on the role of diet in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). You will read an article investigating the relationship between micronutrient intake and androgen levels associated with PCOS.

Cesarean section rates continue to rise globally. In relation to this, the rate of health implications after cesarean section has increased analogously. Every effort for promotion of vaginal birth is of great importance. You will also read an interesting study which analyzed the outcome of trial of labor after cesarean section (TOLAC) in a Western population and identify factors associated with the success of vaginal birth after caesarean section.

You will also have the opportunity to read an experimental study examining the effects of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUCMSCs), amniotic fluid (AF), and a combination of both on the uterus and ovaries in a rat model of abdominal adhesions.

Dear Esteemed Readers,

Clarivate Plc, on July 26, 2022, announced that in the 2023 release of the Journal Citation Reports™, all Web of Science Core Collection™ journals will get a Journal Impact Factor (JIF)™. This will make full transparency possible to the articles and citations that contribute to impact.

The Journal Citation Indicator (JCI) represents the average category-normalized citation impact for papers published in the prior three-year period. As we announced earlier our journal is included in the JCI, a new metric offered by Web of Science, and its score has increased from 0.37 to 0.43. JTGGA became the third-quarter journal according to JCI data.

Citation counts are important metrics for the academics and journals. As we see, JTGGA has also an increase in citation counts. Choice of key words, use of key words in the title, using the same form of your name and surname, presentation of your study at the conferences, sharing your data on social media will all help to increase the citation counts.

Please visit us online at www.jtgga.org and keep in touch with us by following us on Twitter @JtggaOfficial. We are looking forward to receiving your valuable submissions, thank you in advance for your contributions.
