An increase in the number of articles in English will undoubtedly make the journal open to the world community, and serious research conducted by colleagues will not go unnoticed in the scientific world.

But we are not going to stop at the achieved results. We ask you, our authors and readers, to take a more active position by describing and sending to the editor articles containing the results of original research, literature reviews and clinical cases describing rare diseases and unique clinical manifestations, short communications and conference reports on a wide range of issues, related to medical education, clinical medicine and public health. Thanks to you, we will continue to maintain the high scientific level of the journal.

The Editorial Board of the journal is always open to comments and suggestions. Critical comments and friendly advice will be taken into account in the preparation of future issues, because work to improve the quality of publications is impossible without an active dialogue with authors and readers.

Congratulations on the new publishing year, we express our sincere gratitude and thank you for your cooperation!
