Dear Colleagues,

Digital publication and online submissions of the manuscripts have opened the wide accesses for the past two decades. We being oral pathologists are still learning to use these tools to reach authors and readers around the world and carry them into our ecosystems. After releasing the special online issue on oral case reports, we come up with another issue for this year. JOMFP is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a podium to professionals, research scholars, academicians and students in the field of oral and maxillofacial pathology and oral microbiology to share the research achievements, their perspectives and practical experiences. We also are accepting papers from many parts of the world for publication in our journal to fill the gaping hole that exists in our area of scope to identify potential targets that needs to be focused on.

Our aim till now has been to preserve our veracity and publish the uppermost quality of research using ethical standards of publishing and our consistent efforts are aimed toward increasing the citation factor, impact, editorial cycle time, visibility and the overall quality of this journal. We have become more scrupulous in reviewing and accepting submissions and we hope this movement continues in further as well.

As an editor, I hope our readers and patrons share a similar vision, and our team look forward to a productive, challenging and a successful 2019 ahead. In the spirit of constant improvement, any beneficial contribution on streamlining our processes is very welcome.
