Greetings!

Welcome to the fourth issue of the year 2015.

It is time to recollect the journey which I embarked in 2011 as Editor.

At the outset, I thank all the members of IAPHD for supporting my candidature in the 2011 elections held in Bengaluru. I am grateful to my teacher, Dr. S. S. Hiremath for inspiring me to take up this post.

With lot of expectations and hopes, I started my journey. The members of editorial board, reviewers, and authors were always with me. In the course of time, journal became quarterly from biannual publication. Medknow publishers joined hands in 2014. Till then, journal was published by Ganesh offset printers. Back volumes of JIAPHD are being published online and subscription rates for year 2016 are enhanced. Audited reports are submitted regularly.

Since my tenure was four years, I had opportunity to work with members elected in 2011 and 2013. I am fortunate to have enjoyed the support of these members throughout my tenure. I thank President Emeritus Dr. R. K. Bali, President Dr. M. R. Shankar Aradhya, and Dr. Ganesh Shenoy Panchmal for their guidance. Similarly, I thank Hon. Secretary, Dr. M. B. Aswath Narayanan and Treasurer, Dr. Pushpanjali for their constant support and trust in me. Heartfelt thanks to all the office bearers and EC members for their encouragement.

Peer review is an undaunting task aimed at attaining and maintaining quality of the journal. Editorial board and reviewers are backbone in our endeavor toward excellence. Their quest for quality is unmatched. Authors are constant source of research material. Special thanks to all the authors for choosing JIAPHD to publish their research work. I am grateful to the members of editorial board, reviewers, and authors for their meaningful contribution to this process. Medknow publishers are doing a great job. Many thanks to Mr. Hemanth Manjrekar, Ms. Kavita Chavan, Sushama Cheulkar, and all the members for Medknow for excellent coordination. Department staff and postgraduate students have provided great support in my endeavor.

Best wishes for happy and prosperous year 2016.
