Dear Readers,

We are so proud and happy to welcome you to the second issue of “The Journal of Pediatric Research” in 2019. The Journal of Pediatric Research is indexed in The Web of Science-Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), EBSCO, CINAHL Complete Database, ProQuest, Gale/Cengage Learning, Index Copernicus, Academic Keys, Tübitak/Ulakbim TR Index, TurkMedline, Hinari, GOALI, ARDI, OARE, Türkiye Citation Index and CiteFactor.

In this issue, we present you with 15 articles including 1 review, 4 case reports and 10 original pieces of research from different disciplines. The review published in this issue is about congenital tooth agenesis and its early diagnosis. The aim of this study is to draw attention to the pediatric dentist-pediatrician cooperation in the early diagnosis of congenital tooth agenesis. In one of the research articles in this issue, the authors present an evaluation of syringe feeding compared to bottle feeding for the transition from gavage feeding to oral feeding in preterm infants and they recommend syringe feeding as a transitional method prior to breastfeeding for preterm infants during hospitalization. This issue, with its articles published, covers several scientific areas in pediatrics such as neonatology, pediatric neurology, pediatric oncology, pediatric metabolism, pediatric gastroenterology, pediatric cardiology, pediatric surgery, pediatric infection and pediatric dentistry. This broad range makes our journal special. The impact factor of “The Journal of Pediatric Research” is growing and it gives us hope to enter greater scientific areas and new international indexes.

I would like to acknowledge the members of our editorial board reviewers, authors and Galenos Publishing House for preparing the second issue of 2019. We look forward to your scientific contributions in our future issues. Best wishes İzmir, June 2019.

Sincerely yours,

June 2019
