Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Aim: The aim of this study is to identify the 50 most cited Turkish papers in international Orthopedic literature and analyze them to define the subconscious scientific behaviors of Turkish Orthopedic surgeons and the contributive characteristics of Turkish Orthopedic surgeons for the science at the last four decade.
Material and Methods: WoS Core Collection was searched for the Turkish Orthopedic articles between 1980 and 2019 in all fields with pre-defined terms. Data including the number citations, age of the article, subcategories, number of authors, journals names, impact factors and publishers, institution names, numbers and categories, Level of Evidence (LoE) and article language were collected. A correlation analysis (Pearson for parametric and Spearman for nonparametric values) was performedbetween the impact factors and citation numbers (C), and also citation rates (C/R). A chi-square test was performed between citation numbers and levels of evidence. A value of p 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant.
Results: All of the 50 articles were original articles that were written in English. The citation counts were between 164 and 44. The article ages were between 27(C:60, C/R: 2.22/yr) and 2(C: 50, C/R: 25/yr). Tweenty-three different journals were found in the analysis. The mean level of evidence (LoE) was found 3. 84% of the papers were studied in a University hospital.
Conclusion: This bibliometric study showed no statistically significant correlation between the data analyzed. On the other hand, this study also revealed once again that there was no correlation between citation numbers and journal impact factors as expected. Additionally, this study also showed that Turkish Orthopedic scientists are getting citations independent of journal impact factors.
