Welcome to the fourth issue of the year 2018.
Index Copernicus is an online database of user-contributed information, including scientist profiles, as well as of scientific institutions, publications, and projects established in 1999 in Poland, and operated by Index Copernicus International. It is often cited as a source of quality, open access journals in research, and scholarly publishing circles. I am glad to inform that Journal of Indian Association of Public Health Dentistry (JIAPHD) is indexed with or included in the Index Copernicus. This initiative will help in increasing the visibility of our journal. I take this opportunity to thank the Head Office for all the cooperation and support, previous Editors-in-Chief Dr. M. B. Aswathnarayanan and Dr. Manjunath P. Puranik, present and previous editorial boards, reviewers, authors, Medknow, and all the members for their help and efforts.
This is for your kind information that it was decided in the previous annual general body meeting of our association that author processing charges have to be initiated for the JIAPHD. As the indexing was under process, it was delayed to initiate the same. Now that we have got concurrence from the publishers that the author processing charges can be initiated, we are starting to charge the author processing charges for those manuscripts which are going to be uploaded on or after November 1, 2018 (once the manuscript is accepted for publication). This step will help our journal meet certain percentage of publishing costs. I request all the members to cooperate with the same and continue extending their support by submitting quality research work for the prestigious association journal at national level.
As we all are aware that we are celebrating our Silver Jubilee Year of our esteemed association, we are eager to be a part of this celebrations during the upcoming national conference hosted by DJ College of Dental Sciences at Modinagar.
