The first issue of the World Journal of Clinical Urology (WJCU), whose preparatory work was initiated on December 6, 2010, will be published on December 28, 2011. The WJCU Editorial Board has now been established and consists of 101 distinguished experts from 25 countries. Our purpose in launching the WJCU is to publish peer-reviewed, high-quality articles via an open-access online publishing model, thereby acting as a platform for communication between peers and the wider public, and maximizing the benefits to editorial board members, authors and readers.
