I along with the entire editorial board feel very proud to present the first issue of the MAMC Journal of Medical Sciences. We were driven to launch this journal by the fact that MAMC is one of the leading and largest medical colleges that has an annual intake of 250 undergraduate and nearly 200 postgraduate students. A large number of research projects and theses are carried out by the students and the faculty which are transformed into useful presentations and publications. It was felt that sufficient in-house research material is produced in this college and that this material can be condensed into a multispecialty scientific journal under the aegis of MAMC. The focus of the journal at least during the initial phase would be to disseminate the scientific material that is informative and helps to keep the reader updated. In addition, the emphasis will be on providing the clinical and teaching material with a special context to the Indian circumstances. This can be attained by way of publishing review articles, clinical research papers, case reports and discussions, and letters to the editor. As time passes, other material can be added. The list of potential features is endless, and I welcome comments related to this matter.

Although, in the initial period, the journal aims to publish material from the college, the contributions from outside the college would be welcome in due course. Each paper will be peer-reviewed by eminent editorial board and guest reviewers with the aim of providing the decision within 5 weeks of submission.

Medical journals are making rapid changes to keep up with the revolution in biomedical technology. They are also growing in number. Our goal will be to make the journal an attractive medium for expression of our scientific, as well as educational thoughts. We are aware of the overwhelming scientific, research and educational work that is going on in the MAMC campus. Therefore, we are confident that the MAMC journal will provide quality articles in the initial period as others catch the attention and are encouraged to contribute to this journal.

The editorial board will play a crucial role in enhancing the scientific content of the journal. Few readers realize, what a daunting task it is to skillfully review a scientific manuscript. It requires experience, knowledge, endurance and hard work. I am sure the eminent editorial board will extend all the support that the journal deserves.

I wish to thank the Research Society of the MAMC for agreeing to the idea of bringing out this journal and the editorial board for being a part of the journal and providing a lot of support and advice. Finally, I wish to thank all the contributors who submitted papers for the first issue and the editors Dr. Pawanindra Lal and Dr. Jugal Kishore for their hard work and completing the review process in a record short time so that the journal could see the light of the day. Many thanks are also due to the members of the editorial board who reviewed these first papers submitted to the journal. I thank them for the precious feedback and advice.

Indeed, the launch of this journal is a dream come true and I hope that the journal will prove to be a useful educational tool not only for the MAMC, but for the entire medical fraternity across the country, and that it will fulfill the expectations of the readers in general and the MAMC members in particular.
