Dear Friends,

I hope that you would find the present issue of the Journal interesting. It has several interesting original articles and brief reports besides a couple of very useful reviews. In addition, I would like to draw your attention to the following exciting developments;

  1. IJR app: The IJR App is now live and running successfully on both popular platforms (for ios, App Store and for Android, Google Play). Please go to the relevant app stores and search for Indian Journal of Rheumatology or visit the Journal website for the link. The IJR app is free, and new issues will be made available on it soon after each issue goes to print.
  2. IJR supplement on musculoskeletal ultrasound: Kudos to guest editors Dr. Prasan Deep Rath and Dr. Sajjan Shenoy N for bringing out this informative supplement. This supplement is unique in the way it has dealt with the fundamentals of musculoskeletal ultrasound making it useful reference volume for all of us. I would like to acknowledge Dr. Durga Prasanna Misra for the hard work he has put into the production work of this supplement.
  3. IJR workshops on scientific writing and publication: These workshops are very popular. We recently conducted one at Jaipur and Haldwani and Mumbai are next on the list. Later this year as a part of IRACON at Guwahati a full day workshop combining it with research methodology has been planned. Please do attend and brush up your skills!

On a personal note, I am happy to share the news of my recent appointment as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh ( I am grateful for the overwhelming support for the same from one and all.

As ever I welcome feedback or suggestions regarding any aspect of the Journal by mailing to or the postal address of the editorial office as appears below.
