Dear Readers,

Warm greetings of festive season of Navratri, Dussehra, Deepawali and Christmas to all on behalf of the editorial board of JOMFP. At the outset, I am very delighted to inform all the readers that the backlog articles from the year 2015 have been cleared and the articles from the year 2016 and 2017 are in review process. I am also glad to inform our readers that it has been decided from our editorial board to bring out an online supplementary issue annually comprising of the compilation of all the interesting case reports which are peer-reviewed and the issue will be available online by January, 2018. Words fail me in acknowledging the constant support and untiring efforts of the editorial board members and panel of reviewers in completing this difficult task.

Besides these, there is a critical need for addressing oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMDs), in the present scenario as early detection and treatment of OPMDs is of great significance in decreasing the incidence of oral cancer. Hence, as oral pathologists, we play a pivotal role in early detection of OPMDs and thereby reducing the risk of oral cancer and making the society oral cancer free. It is time to enhance our skills and knowledge in addressing OPMDs, so the upcoming issues of JOMFP will address topics related to OPMDs.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the authors who have put their trust in this journal and have considered it worthy for publication of their good research work. Over the years, the journal has risen to great heights and has come to be widely known across the globe. Hope our readers enjoy reading the articles and continue their patronage with JOMFP.
