Sir,

We have read the article "Art of publication and selection of journal" with interest. [1] The authors have covered almost all the practical issues related to writing. This article will come in handy to many post-graduates who will be preparing to publish their research work. The only thing, may be the most important one, that has to be added is regarding medical ethics and avoidance of plagiarism. Moreover, a little bit of planning beforehand, such as study design, proper consent forms and ethical committee approval etc., saves time. An article by Kallestinova also lists the requisite items starting from introduction to conclusion. [2]

Of course, a good research work also reflects good teamwork. Acknowledging people who have helped in carrying out and have a role in successful completion of the work, gives rise to a feel good atmosphere. [3] In fact many journals, including Medknow journals, provide templates enlisting each authors' contribution.

Last, but not the least; reviewers do play a crucial part. And as pointed out by the authors' rejection by one journal should not be the end of the story. One should again go back to the manuscript and incorporates the comments suggested by the reviewers. [4] After all, if one has faith in his/her genuine work, it's bound to see the light of the day.
