Dear Colleagues, Our journal titled Grand Journal of Urology (Grand J Urol), whose foundation studies were completed by the end of 2020 was published in January 2021 by publishing its first issue and took its place among scientific journals in the field of urology. The journal aims to publish original scientific urological articles. It is an open access, peer-reviewed journal and will be published online three times a year (January, May and September) in English. Our primary goal is to carefully evaluate the works of domestic and foreign authors, to take place in national and international reputable indexes with original and scientific articles, and to announce its name and content on scientific platforms. One of the most important criteria in the long journey to an academic career in our country is the production of scientific articles. I believe that the recently applied associate professorship criteria and the subsequent professorship criteria will increase the production of scientific articles in our country. This increase will increase the demand for distinguished, rigorous and scientific journals. In this process, the Grand Journal of Urology (GJU) will play an important role in delivering written and visual scientific publications to academic platforms and contributing to urology. GJU will add a new impetus to academic activities with its unique style. I am honored to present you the first issue of the Grand Journal of Urology (GJU) journal with the contributions of valuable researchers and scientists in a period when branch activities have decreased considerably due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the beginning of this journey of our journal, I would like to express my wholehearted gratitude to the very valuable members of the Urology Community, my colleagues, my friends and my dear wife, who always supported us, our authors who contribute to our journal with orginal articles, review articles, case reports, clinical images and letters to the editor, our reviewers who meticulously evaluate the articles and present their support, our designers, and our publisher.
