| Kerala Surgical Journal|| |
We have been trying hard to proceed with the indexation of the Kerala Surgical Journal through Ms. Wolters Kluver. Two issues of the journal were published in time this year with high quality original articles and papers. Hopefully our journal will get indexed soon, so that our journal will be self-sustainable.
I am really grateful to my past Chairmen Dr. EV Gopi, Chairman Dr Binni John and the entire ASIK office bearers for their total support and advice. I also thank all the Executive committee members and seniors for their constant encouragement and support. I may be pardoned if there had been any inadvertent error or inaction from my part during my tenure. Many of our social and academic activities were suspended during the time of the pandemic. I hope that as the situation is under control, we should be able to roll back to our energising get togethers and all academic activities in future.
