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.

Abstract

Aim: Cognitive failures are suggested to be a transdiagnostic endophenotype that increases the vulnerability for psychiatric disorders. Broadbent’s Cognitive Failures Questionnaire (CFQ), is among the most widely used scales to assess cognitive function observed in an ecological manner. Despite its wide use in research and correlation with biological markers, CFQ is criticized for its unstable factorial structure among studies and 5-Likert structure that may lead to bias for neutral answers. Here we aimed to develop a 4-Likert Turkish version of CFQ, search its validity, reliability and factorial structure.
Material and Methods: CFQ has been translated to Turkish in two steps. CFQ, Perceived Deficit Questionnaire-D (PDQ-D), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) were applied to 272 participants (187 healthy controls, 55 patients diagnosed with depression, 30 patients diagnosed with anxiety disorder).
Results: The Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of 4-Likert Turkish version of CFQ was found as 0.91. Principal component analysis extracted five factors and explained 53.7 % of total variance. CFQ scores were significantly different among groups. Both depressive and anxious groups reported higher CFQ scores compared to controls. CFQ significantly and strongly correlated with PDQ-D and showed a moderate correlation with BDI and BAI.
Conclusion: 4-Likert Turkish version of CFQ is a valid and reliable tool to assess cognitive failures in non-demented groups. Our analysis revealed a five factorial structure for CFQ, however previous literature with the 5-Likert version shows different factor structures and does not indicate a dimensional stability.

Keywords: nxiety; cognitive failure; depression; validity
