Dear Members,

At the outset, let me begin with greetings for the New Year which has dawned with new promises and hopes. For our journal too, we look forward to marking new milestones with streamlining the new phase of operation. Last year had been a hard climb and called for a lot of effort towards indexing, as an effect of which we are lagging behind in one issue. With all our efforts, it should be possible to catch up quickly and make further operations smooth. It is heartwarming to see articles from across the globe being submitted through our online submission system. The quality of work is primarily assessed and rejections of original articles may be inevitable if the standards of the study are not met. A country like India is a fertile ground for academic activities to be carried alongside medical practice and we are all lucky to belong to such a system. Such exposure and opportunities may not be available in many other countries which may also affect the study outcome. I sincerely urge our fraternity, especially the new generation, to utilize this advantage and to come out with novel and innovative methods to take our specialty forward. The initiative shown by our members in switching to online submissions, reviews, corrections, and updating deserves special appreciation. We are now following a system similar to IJO, and authors have much more control on their publications. However, it was not a very trivial task to switchover, especially with limitations of manpower and logistical resources. With every issue, we are gaining renewed confidence and the tasks are also getting defined better, making this an easier and more organized system to work with. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to all our KSOS torchbearers who continue to be the leading lights to move forward and who have shown a lot of patience and extended unstinted support during this painful process of transition. We should also generate a mechanism for maintaining a pool of articles similar to that of international journals. To this end, I encourage all our enthusiastic academicians and budding ophthalmologists to extensively use the online submission system and keep uploading articles of significance from which we can select the best lot and improve upon the rest. This will also help to generally increase the number of publications from our members and help each author to evolve to a better level. Let us work together to evolve ourselves, our system, and everything around.
