Fourth Year of Asian Journal of Arthroscopy

Journals grow slowly and require immense hard work to sustain them year after year. Maintaining the quality of the journal is paramount and along with that journal too has to innovate itself. Asian Journal of Arthroscopy is now in its fourth year and has gained the support of the Arthroscopy community in India and in Asia too. It is time for us to innovate and to expand our horizons. This issue marks some new things and promotes certain new formats
The first is the Arthroscopy Surgical Video Atlas of AJA. Arthroscopy is one of the most dynamically evolving surgical branch where innovative surgical techniques are being described very frequently. Also even for common surgical techniques, there are many simple steps that vary from surgeon to surgeon. We wish to chronicle these surgical techniques and these variations in surgical steps through this new section in the Journal. This will also mark the beginning of the video format of the article for Asian Journal of Arthroscopy. The articles in the Arthroscopy Atlas section will be in a video format and the details of the format are displayed on the website. Authors can send us a small abstract of the video and the video with voiceover and this will be published in the print as well as the online version of the Journal. To begin this Atlas we are taking one of the videos from our editor Dr. Sachin Tapasvi on Arthroscopic Repair of Bucket Handle Medial Meniscal Tear. We would like to invite our readers to send their surgical videos to us and get a publication out of their videos
The second focus of the journal will be on case reports this year. Case reports are stepping stones, especially for young arthroscopy surgeons and are a way to initiate them in the field of academics. We would request the senior arthroscopy surgeons to make it compulsory for their fellows to at least write one case report in their entire fellowship term. We would be glad to help the fellows in polishing these case reports and publish it in Asian Journal of Arthroscopy.
We would like to thank Dr. Deepak Goyal, the guest editor for this issue for compiling this issue with eminent authors from around the globe
Lastly, we are in need of more editorial board members and would request our interested readers to write an email to us with a letter o intent. The selection process has already started and we wish to bring together a group of interested editorial board members to take the journal ahead into the future.
