On behalf of our editorial team, I would like to offer a word of thanks to our readers, contributors, authors, editors and anonymous reviewers, all of whom have volunteered to contribute to the success of the journal and also for its mission to improve the quality of care and research in the form of publication in the sector of medical education. We are publishing our journal twice a year with a particular emphasis on quality, safety and better outcomes of research. I am equally elated to inform you all that JoNMC has been contributing tremendously to improve the quality of research and education in the medical sector by publishing its issues regularly since 2012. An enormous amount of work has been done towards the development of this journal in the past days.

JoNMC is dedicated to the rapid dissemination of high quality research papers. We know that only advances in Medical Science and Technology can help us in confronting the challenges of the 21st century, and to capitalize on the promises ahead. We welcome contributions that can demonstrate near-term practical usefulness, particularly contributions that take a multidisciplinary /convergent approach because many of the real world problems are complex in nature.

Finally, we encourage contributions from the scientific communities to ensure a continuity of a successful medical journal. Authors, reviewers and guest editors are always welcome. We also welcome comments and suggestions that could improve the quality of the journal.

Thank you. We hope you will find JoNMC more informative in the future endeavor. 

Dr. Ram Hari Ghimire
