Dear seniors and colleagues,
It gives me immense pleasure to bring to your attention that the KOA Journal has now become indexed.
This is entirely due to the efforts put in by the editor Dr Anil Bhat and his team and also his predecessors.
While this achievement is laudable, it brings with it greater responsibility to the editor and more so to us the members of KOA. It is now entirely up to us to constantly contribute quality scientific material so that we can enhance the standing of our journal amongst the Orthopaedic fraternity. The journal will provide an excellent platform to our young surgeons as an avenue to fulfill their academic requirements and satiate their desire for quality publication.
Along with publishing the Journal it is now also the responsibility of KOA to provide good research training and make our members aware of good publishing practices. To meet this need we have kept an hour-long research session in KOACON. The JKOA editorial team will be conducting this and KOA members can then interact with the faculty and resolve their queries. Hopefully these initiatives will improve our research and academic value as individuals and association as a whole
Congratulations once again to one and all.
Dr. M. Ajith Kumar
President, Karnataka Orthopaedic association
