“What defines us is how well we rise after falling” - Anonymous.

When I was given this daunting task of running our journal, JISP, as an Editor in September 2017, we were running much behind the schedule; so much so that the two issues of 2016 and 4 issues of 2017 were pending to be published.

I was not only expected to clear the backlog as soon as possible and but was also supposed to get the journal back on track and on time.

I had no idea when and how will this happen. But with God's grace, help from our Secretory, Dr Ashish Nichani, former Editor, JISP, EC members, and especially reviewers we could do it. My team consisting of Dr. Mansi Bansal (assistant editor), Dr. Manish Khatri (business manager) and technical support team at Medknow have worked overtime and not only cleared the backlog but with present issue (Jan-Feb 2018), we are back on time.

A great deal of appreciation goes to the authors, who have kept their confidence in JISP and all the reviewers for their extreme cooperation and hard work. The response to our hard work was visible when we saw a huge jump in number of manuscripts submitted (84) to JISP in month of January 2018. This is the highest number of manuscripts ever submitted in month of January till date. The highest before this in any year since 2009 was 39. This increase in submission can also be attributed to the fact that there is reduction in response time to authors for their manuscripts.

I hope the authors will keep their confidence in JISP going and reviewers will keep sharing their knowledge by reviewing the manuscripts and making them better for publication and in turn raising the standard of our journal.

I would also like to thank the office bearers and EC members of ISP for accepting my suggestion of awarding certificates of appreciation from ISP to all the esteemed reviewers in recognition of their tireless honorary hard work of reviewing the manuscripts.

We are working hard. We are striving to be better….than before.

“We remember, we rebuild, we come back stronger”

-Barack Obama
