There is no dearth of journals published around the world. Many standard journals are published from the Indian subcontinent itself. However, JCDR is unique and aimed at being very different. The editor-in-chief felt challenged when he worked in a western setup after spending almost a decade in the Indian private sector. He realised that although physicians in developing countries witness a range of disease spectrums, and acquire a wealth of knowledge because of high clinical exposure, they do not publish their experiences. As a result, medical practitioners in developing countries are often rendered speechless while discussing in an international forum. Lack of motivation, lack of time and a busy schedule prevent these practitioners from publishing their findings. Many feel strongly motivated to express and narrate their opinion, but to write the same most lose the motivation. The lack of scientific writing skills among young researchers and postgraduate students leads to failure of their research thesis reaching any journal of repute.

We aim to use this journal to publish the findings of doctors working at the ground level and that of young researchers. Very soon, we will provide commentaries from senior experienced physicians. The first step will involve helping physicians and researchers to draft and write articles. We will make constructive changes to the original draft submitted. For authors whose second language is English, we will provide English editorial services as well.

Although this journal has been started in India, we believe such needs exist with many researchers in various countries and openly welcome original articles and case reports from around the world. We promise to provide similar unbiased service to every one who wishes to use our services.
