Welcome to the fourth issue of the year 2019.
I sincerely thank all the authors, reviewers, editorial board members, and office bearers of Indian Association of Public Health Dentistry (IAPHD), all the members, Medknow, and readers for extending their continuous support and cooperation for bringing out the fourth issue of the year 2019 successfully.
Our objective as a team should be improve the citations and in turn the impact factor of the journal by publishing papers with fair and good external validity, so that they become standard references and receive citations. This is something which has to be done from the authors' side. Citation symbolizes association of ideas. Citation indexing is considered as one of the important tools for tracing ideas across a multitude of disciplines and for evaluation R and D output of an individual, institution, country, or region. Now that Journal of IAPHD is indexed in Indian Citation Index, which helps as a comprehensive research and evaluation tool for Indian literature, and provides a boost to Indian publishing industry at global level.
With this, we hope to reach newer heights in future with the contribution of the Head Office, Office Bearers, editorial board members, authors, reviewers, life and student members, and Medknow.
