We are very excited to see the Journal of Clinical Imaging Science (JCIS) online and are most encouraged by the response we have received.

We want to thank our readers, contributors, editorial board members, section editors, and above all the reviewers, who have successfully completed many reviews against tight deadlines and helped us bring high-quality articles online. We are highly appreciative of the support we received from one and all. Special thanks to Brady Huang for having worked diligently through a very difficult article and ensuring its publication in the first issue of our online journal. Currently, the average number of days from submission to publication of an article is around 50 days. We are working to reduce this average of 50 days to 6 weeks.

In a short period of 4 months, we have received 63 articles from Japan, Canada, United States, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Turkey, and India for publication. We look forward to participation from other countries. Our JCIS website has been visited by more than 3000 readers. The popular Pictorial Essay “Sonographic Spectrum of Tunica Albuginea Cyst” has been viewed 810 times and 154 copies of the PDF version have been downloaded in 3 months since its publication. The Case Report “Sprengel Deformity: Magnetic Resonance Imaging Findings in Two Pediatric Cases” has been viewed 823 times and 235 copies of the PDF version have been downloaded in 2 months. These numbers indicate that there is a need for an open forum and we at JCIS have taken the right path in moving ahead to fill this need.

JCIS is probably the only non-society-affiliated, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that covers the full range of topics in radiology. The journal's objective is the dissemination of timely information among radiologists and physicians who have the unenviable task of serving the global community. We are looking to be the newest and most accessed journal in our area of specialization. To reach this goal, we are seeking your participation, contributions, suggestions, and continued support. And, yes, we welcome your constructive criticism too.

I am personally very thankful to Uma Prakash, Editorial Director, whose tireless efforts ensured that all articles were available online, on time. I also want to take this opportunity to thank the team of Medknow under the leadership of Dr. D. K. Sahu for their wonderful support in bringing this journal online.

We also want to take this opportunity to convey to our readers the very best of wishes for a wonderful summer ahead.

With warm regards,
