It is a moment of delight to pen a note for the volume 7, issue 1 of the journal, which is now being published through its new partner Wolters Kluwer—Medknow. The Journal of Indian System of Medicine is an official publication of Mahatma Gandhi Ayurved College, Hospital & Research Centre, which is a constituent unit of Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences (Deemed to be University). Published since 2013, the journal has seen a continuous improvement in its quality enhancement. More than 280 articles have been published since then, which include articles from almost all the specialties of Ayurveda.

The journal aims at bringing out scientifically sound and relevant articles, which contribute in validating the science with the help of modern scientific tools and thereby help in the wider dissemination of the knowledge and bring about global acceptance to the science.

It is probably one of the only few Ayurveda specialty journals run by a private Ayurveda college without any financial aid from any governmental or nongovernmental agencies. The journal does not levy any publication charges on the authors and all the costs of publication are borne by the University itself. At the same time, it is also an important matter to stress that since its inception, the print copies of all the issues of the journal have been freely circulated to almost 100 Ayurveda colleges all over India and to members of regulating bodies such as Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM), and CCRAS (Central Council for Research in Ayurveda Sciences).

With this new venture of publication with Medknow, who is a leader in maintaining higher standards of scientific publications, the journal aims to reach higher level of publication. At this juncture, it is my duty to recognize the selfless work and time rendered by previous editors, members of editorial board, and authors of past and present articles, without whom, this fete would not have been possible.

With a rapid growing interest toward Ayurveda and other Indian system of medicines such as yoga, naturopathy, and Siddha by the scientific world and the public, the journal plans to incorporate future publications from these sciences too.

The journal in its new avatar has stepped into catering the needs of many research aspirants who wanted a quality platform to highlight their sincere efforts, the editorial board and the team of editors of the Journal of Indian System of Medicine welcome all these aficionados to use the journal platform to their fullest possible extent and achieve wider dissemination of their works.

In this issue, a total of 11 articles are being published. In the editorial, an insight over the role of pragmatic trials for validating the concepts and principles of Ayurveda therapeutics has been vividly written. In the original article section, an interesting survey study by an undergraduate scholar on the prevalence of fistula-in-ano among night duty workers is thought provoking. The two experimental studies on Naga Bhasma (lead ash) and its effect on hematological and biochemical parameters and a study of Ayurveda drug compound for its efficacy in leukemia are new dimensional approaches in understanding traditional concepts in the eyes of modern scientific parameters. The review articles in the present issue analyse the fundamental concepts of Ayurveda in the branches of Sharira Rachana, Rasashastra and Bhaishajya Kalpana, and Chikitsa critically. Two innovative clinical therapies have been highlighted in case study sections. Ghrita prepared of Khanduchakka (Ehretia laevis)—the drug that has received lots of attention in recent period for its wound healing activity has shown encouraging results in Parikarthika (fissure-in-ano). The other case study highlights the efficacy of Nyagrodha Ksheer Sutra (a modified form of Kshara Sutra) in anal fistula. Finally, two national conference reports on Mother and Child Health Care through Ayurveda “Vatsalyam” and “Kalaanveshan 2019” on exploring the concept of Kala and its applicability have been detailed with the outcomes from the deliberations.

I hope this issue is interesting and helpful for the seekers of new knowledge and serves the need of the researchers.
