It has been a great journey since the conceptualization and inception of Wadia Journal of Women and Child Health (WJWCH). The first issue was released on Doctors’ Day, July 1, 2022 and was well received by peers and the readership. The journal site usage is very encouraging and we have already had 4350 downloads as we write this editorial message. We hope the subsequent issues will also be equally well accepted.
It gives us great sense of gratification to release this Second Issue of the WJWCH journal.
The number of submissions to the journal have been steadily increasing. We have been able to put together this second issue with manuscripts chosen meticulously through an editorial policy that is guided by the high standards of scientific quality and integrity, professional responsibility, and ethical legacy. We do hope that our researchers, clinicians, students, nurses and other health care providers continue to make their valuable contribution towards the journal.
This second issue features – 1 Original article, 2 Case series, 5 Case reports, 1 Narrative review, 1 Pictorial essay, 5 Clinical images, 1 Brief communications and 1 Letter to Editor.
In this issue, the Narrative Review about the Tissue Bank at Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children (BJWHC) highlights the novel tissue grafts prepared and provided by the Unit and its long journey from being a skin bank to a Government of Maharashtra certified Tissue Bank forms an interesting read.
In the brief communication, the exciting and extremely fulfilling journey of achieving the coveted accreditation by the American Accreditation Council International (AACI) is described. BJWHC is the first hospital in India to be awarded the AACI certification.
The editorial board is committed to get the journal indexed in major search engines, indices, and databases to increase the visibility and recognition in wider scientific community. As a step towards the same, we got the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) Online ISSN: 2833-0277 and Print ISSN: 2834-0531 in August 2022.
We would like to state, on behalf of the Editorial TEAM, that quality is our motive and driving principle. The journey as Editors of this esteemed WJWCH journal is exciting and at times overwhelming but with each advancing step, progress has been made.
We would like to thank Dr. Arka Banerjee, Dr. Dhwani Shah, Dr. Kiran More and all our Editors, Reviewers and other colleagues and staff members from both Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children and Nowrosjee Wadia Maternity Hospital who have worked tirelessly to bring out this issue with greater enthusiasm. We sincerely hope that, with advancing time, this journal will serve as an important resource for the scientific work done in the field of maternal and child health.
