Dear members of APSP greetings from Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Surgery. The journal website is now officially launched and you can submit your manuscripts online by registering an author account on the journal’s website http://jpedas.org. Instructions to the authors can be seen on the submissions page of the journal.
The first two issues are dedicated to the manuscripts (all categories) presented at APSP congress Lahore 2019, and APSP congress Nawab Shah 2020, as oral or poster presentations. The maiden issue of the journal must be participated by every department of Pediatric Surgery and Super-specialties by submitting quality manuscripts. The Guest Editors for the issue dedicated to Lahore congress will be Prof. Mahmood Shaukat and Prof. Muhammmad Saleem and Guest Editors for the issue dedicated to Nawab shah congress will be Prof. Ali Raza Brohi and Dr. Saqib Qazi.
We have to publish three issues till December 2020, therefore everyone one is requested to submit manuscripts in various categories of submission especially original articles, systematic reviews, case reports etc.
Dear friends, this is your journal and we all are guardians of this journal being members of APSP. With our contributions, the journal can survive and flourish. I, on behalf of the editorial board, assure you that the journal will achieve its milestones such as indexing with PMDC in a year and by Pubmed in 2-3 years. This can only be possible with efforts of all of the pediatric surgeons and residents of pediatric surgery. Moreover, the editorial team has decided to waive off article publishing charges (2000/page) for the first two issues. Please get motivated and motivate others for writing manuscripts. Due to covid19 outbreak, sufficient time is available for writing. Kindly do contribute proudly.
Best wishes and personal regards
Professor Dr. Muhammad Saleem
Editor in Chief,
