Dear authors and readers...
We think that we have made some important editorial progress. Submissions to the TJPH are increasing, and length of the reviewing process is decreasing. Dr. Ebru Turhan and Dr. Tayyar Sasmaz have joined the editorial board of the journal. They are the layout editors.
However, we have a lot of work that still needs to be done. One is to join the scientific indexes. Therefore, our journal will be published three times a year from the beginning of 2010. We are working on this issue. We would like to thank all of you for your supports, and we are expecting it to continue.
We hope you enjoy this issue of the Turkish Journal of Public Health. The editors of the TJPH would like to thank all the authors and reviewers.
