Dear Friends,

The Journal, as you would have noticed, continues to improve due to collective work of many people. There are some important updates for the readers:

  1. IJR Best Original Paper Award 2015-2016: The editorial board congratulates the awardees. Details of the papers and authors available on page S iv.
  2. Indexing and abstracting: I am pleased to share that your journal is now included by all major databases including SCOPUS, IndMed, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, EBSCO Publishing's Electronic Databases, Exlibris - Primo Central, Google Scholar, Hinari, Infotrieve, Journal Guide, National Science Library, OpenJGate, ProQuest, and TdNet. The Journal therefore fulfills the current criteria as set by the Medical Council of India.
  3. Workshop on publication and scientific writing: These have been very popular and reflect the commitment of the Journal's editorial board in helping and encouraging scientific communication. The journal wishes to support 2-3 such workshops every year. Please find the details on page S vii.
