Academic Journal of Surgery (AJS) is the official scientific journal of Research Center for Improvement of Surgical Outcomes & Procedures (RCISOP) affiliated to Tehran University of Medical Sciences. AJS is an open access, peer-reviewed, and quarterly journal that considers for publication articles in all fields and specialties of surgery in English language. This journal has both online and print versions and no charges are levied for publication.
Currently, AJS is indexed and abstracted in: Citefactor, UlrichsWeb, Index Copernicus (IC), Directory of Research Journal Indexing (DRJI), Google Scholar, International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), Open Academic Journals Index (OAJI), Advanced Science Index (ASI), Unversal Impact Factor (UIF), Directory of Abstract Indexing for Journals (DAJI), JournalTOCs, Electronic Journal Library (EZB), Scientific Indexing Services (SIS), AcademicKeys, Research Bible, InfoBase Index, Cosmoc Impacr Factor, Scholar Steer, Magiran, and IranMedex.
AJS focuses on all fields and specialties of surgery including General Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Pediatric Surgery, Neurosurgery, Plastic Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Endocrine Surgery, GI Surgery, Colorectal Surgery, Urology, Surgical Oncology, Radiology, Anaesthesia, Trauma Services, ENT, particularly about surgical practice and research. Content includes Original Articles, Systematic Review or Meta-Analysis, Review Articles, Case Reports, Letters to the Editor, Clinical Trials and Health Policy Challenge.
This patient education program explains acne including the causes and treatments. This resource is a MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.
This unit looks at two topics that are of immense worldwide social, economic, ethical, and political importance -"addiction' and"neural ageing'. You will develop a Master's level approach to the study of specific issues within these two important subject areas.

The course consists of lectures, readings, discussions, panels of guest speakers, group and individual projects. The purpose of the lectures, readings, discussion and panels of guest speakers is to explore a variety of aspects of adolescence and adolescent health. The group and individual projects are meant to help students develop skills to work in multi-disciplinary teams and analyze adolescent health concerns through conceptual frameworks and recommend effective solutions through interventions.
This is a clinically oriented course, which covers topics that were not included in the basic courses of both removable partial denture fabrication and complete denture fabrication. Topics including denture repairs, overdentures, implant supported dentures, single dentures, and combination case will be covered on the complete denture side of the course. Topics on the removable partial denture side of the course will include rotational path removable partial dentures, swing lock and precision attachment removable partial dentures, as well as repair and maintenance phase information.

This presentation aims to increase the students’ knowledge about environmental epidemiology, by introducing different study designs used to study health effects of exposure to outdoor air pollution. All study designs are illustrated by examples, starting with the Great Smog (Killer Fog) of London in 1952, one of the landmarks in environmental epidemiology.
Nearly one third of the world’s population are exposed to high levels of indoor air pollution from the household’s use of solid fuel. The fuel is mainly biomass burning under poor combustion conditions
in open fires or primitive stoves and with low ventilation. This costs more than 4 million lives every year and enormous suffering in particular among women and children.
What is air pollution? What is it in the air that is harmful? This lecture focuses on air pollution, where it occur, and how it spread.
In this presentation, we will describe the global levels and trends in major air pollutants and related health burden. Air pollution is an important global risk factor for disease. People who live in more polluted areas develop more often chronic and infectious disease and die prematurely as compared to people living in areas with low air pollution.
In large part of the World, people spend more than 90 percent of the time in indoor environments, where air quality is important for health. The environment outside the building, what goes on inside the building and the exchange of air pollutants affects the indoor air. Tight buildings can reduce energy consumption and entry of outdoor air pollutants, but unless ventilation is right indoor air pollutants from combustion processes, dampness, microbes, the dwellers bio effluents,
appliances, care and cleaning products, clothing, furniture, building materials, the underground and many other sources will build up indoors causing important health effects.
In this presentation, we will discuss how we can know whether one individual is more susceptible to harmful effect of air pollution than others are. Everyone is exposed, but some groups may be more susceptible to the harmful effect of air pollution than others may.
In this lecture, we will describe the mechanisms by which air pollution causes pulmonary health effects in the human population. The pulmonary health effects include exacerbation of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD), increased risk of lower
respiratory tracts infections and lung cancer.
In this presentation, we will describe the mechanisms by which air pollution causes health effects in other parts of the body than the lungs. In continuation of this, we will discuss the important mechanisms of extra pulmonary health effect.
There is a long way before the whole world complies with the WHO guidelines for air quality, but the enormous burden of disease from outdoor air pollution forces us to increase action to come as far as possible. In continuation of this, we will discuss what we can do about air pollution at global, international, national, city and individual levels. Most of the actions to reduce air pollution also mitigates climate change and/or promote health in other ways – so there are many win-win and
