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 published monthly.

All of these evaluations were repeated at 4th and 8th week of treatment. Psychiatric assessment was performed with the Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia for School Age Children-Present and Lifetime Version – Turkish. Sleep habits, sleep-related problems were assessed using the Children Sleep Habits Questionnaire Short Form (CSHQ-S) and the Pediatric Sleep Questionnaire (PSQ).
