Greetings

Welcome to the fourth issue of the year 2014.

Wolters Kluwer Health and Medknow have initiated a comprehensive internal review system to analyze the indexing process for our journal. This analysis will mirror the indexing evaluation criteria used by SCOPUS, SCI, PubMed Central and Medline. The purpose of this internal review is to help improve the chances that JIAPHD will be included in scientific indexes.

One of the key areas of concern is the overall quality of the content published. It is here all of us have a major role to play. Systematic reviews will be preferred over Narrative reviews. Similarly, original and novel studies will be encouraged. It is time that that we move from descriptive to analytical studies. Research outlook should change and let the Research findings help the community at large.

Wish you a happy and prosperous New Year 2015.
