Major urological disorders such as urological cancers, prostate diseases and urinary incontinence occur predominantly in the elderly. Asians comprise more than half (60%) of the global population and there is a rapid increase in the size of the elderly population of many Asian countries, including China, Japan and Taiwan. Asia will soon have the largest population of the aged, and hence the largest population of urological patients, in the world. Urological diseases are expected to become an enormous economic and healthcare burden in Asia. Thus, urological research that is focused on patients of Asian ethnicity will become important not only -for clinicians and scientists in Asia-Pacific but also for those from around the world.

A unique feature of UROLS is its educational articles in clinical urology: Practical Uroradiology, Practical Uropathology and Practical Urodynamics. This 'Practical' series describes commonly encountered clinical issues that have confusing concepts. The series provides clarification and updates on the latest concepts, which is of great value to medical students, residents, clinicians and practitioners.

In addition to the Practical series, UROLS publishes Review Articles, Original Articles, Short Communications, Correspondence and Letters to the Editor.
