Greetings from the editorial board.

As the new Editor-in-chief, I acknowledge the former editors for their stupendous effort in establishing an identity for the Journal of Indian Prosthodontic Society. “Success does not happen overnight; it happens with hard work and team support,” and the path to reach the present status was supported by the Past Presidents and Secretaries of the Indian Prosthodontic Society. I take this opportunity to share some historical events that led our Journal to reach the current position.

Dr. Kashyap Bhargava became the first editor of the official publication at the inception of Indian Prosthodontic Society in 1973. He and his successors, Dr. Kickeri, Dr. Ajay D Lal, Dr. D.V. Nadigir, and Dr. Veena Subba Rao published journals at periodic intervals. Dr. Suhashini Nagda (1998–2008) initiated the quarterly publication and registered our Journal with the Register of Newspaper of India, Indian National Scientific Documentation center, National Institute of Science Communication, Information Resources, and Abstracts on Hygiene and Communicable diseases. She was instrumental in attaining the ISSN number and subsequently to index our journal by Google Scholar, Index Copernicus, and Scopus. She also commenced the installation of website in the year 2003–2004. Dr. Ravindra Savadi (2009–2012) launched the reviewers' database and the journal was indexed by PubMed-Central during his tenure. Dr. Shilpa Shetty (2013–2015) improvised the journal by refining the review process, and Dr. Gopi Chander (2015–2021) streamlined the reviewers' database. During his term, the journal was indexed by PubMed-Medline and Web of Science, and his innovative ideas led to many competitive-based publications under the various titles. The editorial board, since 2000, also conducted periodic seminars and workshops to uplift the knowledge and skill of the editors and reviewers.

Currently, the volume of manuscripts submitted has increased immensely and the editorial board assures to publish the quality manuscripts to improve the citations. The journals are assessed and ranked by various measures, and the impact factor is one such measure that is highly valued. The impact factor is calculated based on the number of citations per manuscript that was published in the preceding 2 years. Personally, I wish to have a commendable impact factor for our journal and that depends on the quality of manuscripts and transparent review process. My humble request to all the authors to help me in achieving this goal by submitting their high-quality original research and systematic reviews for peer review and acceptance.

I welcome suggestions and looking forward to work for you.
