Dear Readers,

We are extremely delighted to present the "Abstract issue" of Indian Journal of Nuclear Medicine (IJNM), which is now indexed in Pubmed. Scientific writings of IJNM will now have wider access, acceptability and readability across the globe.

This academic achievement would not have been possible without the longstanding hardship of previous editorial teams and chief editors comprising our teachers and veterans likes of Brig. N Lakshmipathi, Padmabhushan Dr. RD Lele, Dr. AM Samuel, Dr. OPD Noronha, Dr. Ravi Kashyap (names in order of their term), who dedicated their services to IJNM and continued to bring out its issues for many years without interruption, in spite of having practical and financial difficulties.

On behalf of Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM), I wish to express our sincere gratitude toward Dr. DK Sahu and his highly professional team at Medknow Publishers, Mumbai, in helping us achieve our longstanding academic goal. We really appreciate Dr. Sahu for his efforts and contribution.

We wish to thank our ever inspiring president, Prof. BR Mittal and the current executive body of SNM (India) for their constant encouragement and support for IJNM. We cannot disregard the immense contribution from our SNM members who were persistent in their faith toward IJNM and continued to contribute their papers and articles for the last so many years.

We have a strong scientific community as evident from 134 scientific/proffered papers to be presented during the proceedings of Annual Conference of Society of Nuclear Medicine (India) at PGIMER, Chandigarh. I have been noticing that every year, during the last decade, more than 100 papers are being presented at the national conferences. Now, we have to do a conscientious effort to convert these podium or poster presentations into full paper, original articles and case reports, and submit them to IJNM before the enthusiasm of attending the conference subsides. In cricketing language, making 35-40 odd runs are definitely useful for the team. But converting these thirties and forties into a century makes the real difference for the team as well as for the centurion.

I propose that SNM (India) and Indian College of Nuclear Medicine should take a lead in organizing workshop or dedicated sessions for its members on the subjects of "Scientific Writing", "Research methodology", "Clinical Trials", "Biostatistics" and "Communication Skills" during the conference period so that we can analyze our indigenous data usefully and communicate to literature effectively.

We learn a lot while presenting papers, listening to others work and during discussions at conferences. But by contributing to journals including IJNM, you are creating scientific evidence and contributing to world scientific literature. However small this level of evidence or contribution may be, but your contribution really matters.

Wishing you useful conferencing and success to the organizing committee!
