Introduction

Dear Readers,

We are happy to announce that The Journal of Basic and Clinical Health Sciences ( JBACHS) has been indexed by the Emerging Sources Citation Index since November 2017. We think this achievement will improve the JBACHS"s and authors" visibility in the national and international scientific platforms. As the editorial board, we will continue working hard until the JBACHS will be included in the WOS core index.

Our target in 2018 is to be included in the TR Index developed by the Turkish Academic Network and Information Center (ULAKBİM). ULAKBİM aims to develop various platforms that will reflect the accumulation of scientific knowledge in Turkey. TR Index is one of them and covers five subject fields including Medical Sciences, Engineering, Social Sciences and Humanities, Life Sciences, and Law. Scientific journals in TR Index are selected according to Journal Evaluation Criteria, by expert committees consisting of academicians and specialists working in related subject areas. The main criteria is having published regularly at least two years, which the JBACHS will complete at the end of 2018.

In this issue we have five original articles and a case report covering a wide range of medical field.

We hope that the content of the journal will again attract attention of scientists from wide range of scientific fields. We would like to thank all the authors and reviewers who have contributed to this issue.
