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.

Aim: The emergency of COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected medical students’ education and the possibility of being considered as health-care professionals has come to mind. We described knowledge, behaviours and opinions of medical students during the pandemic and separated into the continents and compared them with our country.
Materials and Methods: The cross-sectional worldwide study including 26 items online questionnaire was conducted between March 24th and April 9th, 2020.Medical students were grouped according to their continent and Turkey as a separate group.
Results: 1454 medical students studying in 64 countries from 4 continents including Asia, Europe, South America and Africa participated in study. Only 23.7% of all was adequately informed about approach to outbreak situations. This was the lowest in Europe and followed by Turkey (20.8%, 21.7% respectively).71.2% of all changed their hygiene habits; paying attention to social distance increased from 2% to 61.9%. In Africa, 58.6% of students feel qualified to work in hospitals voluntarily, whereas it was only 19.9% in Turkey and 29.2% in Europe (p0.001).91.5% of Asian and 87.7% of European students would agree to volunteer in hospitals. In Turkey it was only 71.1% (p0.001).75.9% of all support the view that they should be qualified to volunteer in hospitals when necessary.
Conclusion: Medical students seem to want to volunteer, but have not been adequately informed about the approach to outbreak situations. An international consensus on medical students’ roles may improve medical school programs about the current COVID-19 Pandemic and future ones.
