It is indeed pleasant to reach you through this issue. I am thankful to all Indian Society for Dental Research (ISDR) members who had trust in me and elected me to this coveted post once again. The Indian dental research scenario is currently undergoing rapid transformation. With the renewed interest and vigor in publishing, our association and its journal, Indian Journal of Dental Research (IJDR), have been noted widely by the dental and medical academic world.

With our dental research output at its ever time high, it is appropriate that we try to promote ourselves in the international arena. The then International Association for Dental Research (IADR) President Dr. Marie de Lima Navarro visited us in the early 2011 for our National Congress indicates that we are being now internationally recognized. We should increase our presence in the international meetings of IADR. In this respect, I request all members of ISDR to register themselves as the members of IADR through ISDR. This would fasten the promotion of our status in IADR as Indian Division. By acquiring this distinction, we would have more say and chance for applying for the various awards and fellowships instituted by the IADR. There are several such awards and fellowships that lie unclaimed. I request our members and particularly the undergraduate and postgraduate students to become ISDR and IADR members and utilize this opportunity. I request all the members to attend the IADR meeting shortly to be held in Brazil. The end of January 2012 is the last date for submission of abstract. Please visit their website and register for this international dental research program.

Our journal IJDR is doing very well. It has a projected impact factor of 0.711 for the year 2011 and an immediacy factor of 0.013. This is due to the hard work of Prof B Sivapathasundharam, the Editor in Chief, IJDR, and I wish to extend my heartiest congratulations to him on behalf of the members of ISDR.

I expect to see many more ISDR members register themselves for IADR and present their research work at Brazil soon.

With personal regards
