I am finishing my first term as full-time Editor of Endodontology, and it is the time when you start thinking if you will get a second term? However, I consider my last 4 years with Endodontology, as quite fruitful and it was a great learning experience for me. I was made a makeshift editor after the sudden demise of Prof. Suresh Chandra 4 years back and a full-time editor a year later. When I look back those years, what comes to my mind is hard work of many people. The associate editors of the journal were the backbone. My sincere thanks to Dr. Vivek Hegde, Dr. Vivek Aggarwal, Dr. Mukesh Hasija, and Dr. Rita Chandki. They all worked very hard with me to make sure that the journal progressed in the right direction. The journal started publishing with Wolters Kluwer in 2015 and the process of submission and reviewing got streamlined. The indexing of the journal was our next step which was started this year and the journal got indexed with DOAJ and we hope to get indexed by ESCI by the end of this year and with PubMed by the mid of 2019. Many of my worthy colleagues felt that we were late to apply for this indexing process, but it was due to the long embargo period of many indexing agencies that we had to take time and make sure nothing goes wrong. There is a substantive increase in the manuscript submission on a variety of topics and I am sure that Endodontology is going in the right direction and has a bright future. The younger generation shall surely reap the benefit of this endeavor.
There is a sense of uneasiness these days among the colleagues due to the parting of societies and most of us do not want to be labeled with one. However, we have to adjust with the reality and I personally think that there is ample scope for both the societies to coexist together and yet being independent. There is so much to do for our profession and public at large.
In the end, my sincere thanks to the head office of IES, our core team, the reviewers, and all the readers who made this journey worth a million. I would like to end with words from Benjamin Franklin, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” So keep reading the future issues of Endodontology.
Hoping to be with you for next term too.
