MedReviews to Cease Publishing Reviews In Urology 

MedReviews has ceased publishing the journal Reviews In Urology. The final issue was Volume 22, Number 4.  Designated as LUGPA's official journal in 2013, the journal was published quarterly and was indexed and abstracted in PubMed. The MedReviews.com website was closed in early October 2021;  all published issues will continue to be available on the PubMed website and at www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/journals/373

“LUGPA’s collaboration with Reviews in Urology fulfilled an important role in LUGPA’s overall communications strategy, and provided an outlet for LUGPA members and others to publish their research and scholarly papers.  While we are disappointed that RIU will no longer be published, we look forward to exploring new opportunities to fulfill our mission.” said Dr. David Albala, Associate Editor of RIU. 



Reviews in Urology is LUGPA’s quarterly journal presenting the latest advances in urology.
