Jerajani H R. Special Message. Indian Dermatol Online J 2010;1:1
Indian Dermatology Online Journal (IDOJ) is now ready to be delivered after 9 months of gestation. I feel like a proud granny eagerly waiting to hug the newborn.
The conception of the journal was indeed the work of few enlightened academicians who tossed the idea which immediately caught fancy of each and every member of IADVL. I recall the days of excited discussions on the ACAD Chat group of IADVL. I was the then President elect of IADVL (2009-2010) and was overwhelmed with the idea to reach out to the world and share and exchange the vastness of our collective experience. The proposal was passed unanimously in January 2010 in the General Body Meeting at the National Conference of IADVL (DERMACON-2010) at Lucknow where I was installed as the President, and Dr. Shyam Verma, the Chief Editor, enthusiastically accepted his new found position. His large team of various committee members has worked diligently in very scientifically appropriate ways to create various sections of the journal. Although the journal is intended to be published twice in a year, I envisage more frequent editions in the years to come.
I invite all clinicians, basic scientists, members of subspecialities of dermatology and other related faculties of medicine to come forward on a common platform to present, debate, argue, discuss and share various issues pertaining to global dermatology. Help the world witness the richness of Indian dermatology. Showcase our clinical acumen. My special heartfelt request is for the postgraduates to initiate writing and consider IDOJ as the stepping stone to more advanced ventures in national and major international journals.
