The Editorial board is overwhelmed with the warm responses received from the Executive Committee and the other members of the IAPS, about the metamorphism in the last 2 issues of the Journal of IAPS in its quality and contents, that have been mailed to them from New Delhi from January 2005. The third issue (July-September) is under publication and the supplementary issue (on Conference abstracts) would be in your hands during the forthcoming IAPSCON-2005 in Bangalore.

The support that the Journal has received from India and overseas is tremendous. Good original and review articles from the experts known internationally are being received in sufficient numbers. The Journal is of course is flooded with case reports and there is long queue for the same. The reviewers are contributing a lot and going extra mile to send the articles in record time to avoid delays. All queries from the authors are attended to on day to day basis. This issue was to have theme articles on pouch colon. Many centers had even committed to contribute. However, the editorial board did not receive any article on pouch colon from any center in India. Needless to say, your constant inputs are mandatory to keep progressing and bring further improvements in the Journal.

Few members did not receive the journal in time. However, whenever requested, a duplicate copy was sent and hopefully delivered also. Medknow Publishers in Mumbai feel the initial postal failure rate of only about 1% may not be much when you consider the magnitude of the distances and the vagaries of mailing department in India. As the IAPS Directory has now been upgraded in Excel program (though still remains far from dependable to serve as the perfect mailing list), the editorial board and the publishers would not spare efforts to improve upon further on this front. The changes in addresses, if any, become effective only from the next mailing of the Journal.

The Editorial board remains thankful to all of you for your constant encouragement, feedback and the support. You are requested to send your latest communicating address, if you have been facing any problem in this regard to help us serve you faster.

Any further suggestions and criticism to upgrade the Journal are most welcome.
