Dear Readers,

Greetings from our Editorial team. Our journal has been germinating for 18 years and I am indebted to our association members, editorial team members and the reviewer's contribution for making this journal a grand success. This journal was not only established for researchers but also for all fields including medical, dental, nurses, physiotherapists who are engaged in clinical research related to oral pathology. We should take necessary steps for managing and resolving the many unique healthy topics and problems that we face in our regions. We must engross in research and voice our opinions by publishing them in, our local journal. Since our journal includes many categories, I invite all of you to make regular contributions to our journal. I also encourage other allied health professionals, international researchers to publish their new research data in our journal.

Our journal is published by Wolters Kluwer Health/Medknow since 2007, available in both print and online forms. Scopus citation overview gave H index as 29 for a set of 1294 documents. The site score during 2020 was 1.8 and rated 1.9 in 2021. Looking at the growth of our journal, I welcome the researchers to publish and cite more manuscripts from our journal.

Finally, I thank my Editorial team associates for their contributions and efforts to bring this journal into book or print form. I also thank both local and international reviewers for their valuable peer review and unprejudiced comments. This journal is a major milestone for Oral Pathology and I request my colleagues to embrace and support our journal. I also welcome Oral Pathologists and other fraternity from interdisciplinary departments to join our club as external reviewer and lend your hand to hasten the publication process.

Thanking you

Dr. Smitha T.
