Dear Readers,

Greetings to all of you from our journal. As the Editor-in-Chief, it gives me immense pleasure seeing the journal grow and going through the laudable research work in the cosmopolitan study fields. Having just taken over an established journal which is now celebrating its 25 years, we are looking for new ideas to promote it. I believe in “freedom to write and freedom to Publish” and I am looking forward for new ideas and promotions from international audience, early career academics and new generation scholars.

How to improve the future of our journal citation? This journey has been continuously challenging for our team to improve our impact of bibliometrics and ranking and continue to enhance this elite status. The journal has to mirror the crucial interface between the present and future concepts of oral pathology and technological R&D. We can count on effective fundamentals that make our journal quite unique: cancer neoterics, enigmatic morpho insight, forensic corner and special issues. Maintaining and expanding these programs are at most a top priority for me. We were especially keen to connect with wider international authors and with emerging scholars who may not yet know the journal. We hope to generate a set of innovative and exciting contributions from early-career academics who in turn will develop loyalty to our journal and ensure that it stays relevant for a new generation of scholars.

I would like to show my sincere gratitude to all the authors by providing them an effective and open medium. I would like to explicitly acknowledge the authors for choosing our journal for publishing their papers, our board members and editorial staff who spared their time and ensured to maintain diligence of the journal. Not to forget about the reviewers who have helped in the selection of papers with their high-level expertise and have been pointing regarding the oversights.

Our editorial team would like to thank in advance to all the authors who select our journal for the dissemination of their results. We also respond to the evolution of authors from new domain of interdisciplinary branches, which advance our knowledge on the subject.
