    In publication or citation search, the name similarities of the authors, typographical errors and institutional changes can cause confusion. To prevent this, researchers need to obtain a descriptive ID. ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a researcher-specific international URI with a 16-digit number.

Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Aim: We aimed to investigate the relation of susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) findings with histological grade in intracranial meningiomas.
Materials and Methods: Histopathologically confirmed 58 intracranial meningioma patients (48 typical (low-grade meningioma), 10 atypical (high-grade meningioma)) who had undergone preoperative SWI between 2015 and 2020 were retrospectively evaluated. Tumor size, location, presence of peritumoral edema, WHO grade, low-grade meningioma subtypes and Ki-67 proliferation indexes were noted. SWI findings of intracranial meningiomas were categorized as either positive or negative based on presence/absence of intratumoral susceptibility signals (ITSSs). The origin of ITSSs in SWI-positive meningiomas was assessed with phase images and classified as calcification (SWI-C), vascular structure (SWI-V) or hemorrhage (SWI-H). Mann-Whitney U, chi-square, Fisher’s exact tests and multiple logistic regression analyses were performed for statistical assessment.
Results: There was a significant association between SWI-positivity and low-grade in meningiomas (p = 0.010). A higher incidence of calcification was found in low-grade meningiomas (%60 in low-grade vs %10 in high-grade). Peritumoral edema was found to be associated with high grade in meningiomas (p = 0.032). Ki-67 proliferation index was significantly higher in high-grade meningiomas compared to low-grade. (p = 0.000).
Conclusion: SWI combined with peritumoral edema may help to predict high grade in intracranial meningiomas.
