Results of good research which are available globally and beyond human lifespan have allowed modern medicine to advance... Peer reviewed scientific journals play a big role in dissemination of results from research... IJO was started in 1967 with two issues per year.A visionary step to document the research in the country, it was also a herculean task to attract quality manuscripts, perform the peer review and take care of the publishing process in an era when computers and internet were non-existent... During the planning phase, a lot of thought process went into increasing the visibility, maintaining the consistency of quality, objective documentation of the peer review process, requirement for indexing with international A& I databases, need for a professional publisher and the finances involved... Good work published should be easily retrievable by other researchers so that more work can be built on that and the results can be utilized in clinical practice... With the aim to increase visibility and ‘research impact,’ we launched a separate website for the IJO with the domain www.ijooneline.com during the IOACON 2006 at New Delhi... The entire review process of the journal is managed through a web-based manuscript processing system (www.journalonweb.com/ortho)... The system efficiently manages the double blind peer review of manuscripts and has led to decrease in submission to decision timeline... This should encourage all the authors in this subcontinent and outside to submit their research work to IJO... Though we understand the limitations of Impact Factor and its use in judging quality of research and a journal, we need to improve on our citations and Impact Factor so that authors from universities and institutions requiring publication in high IF journals as criterion for promotion can consider IJO as an alternative to other closed access but high-IF journals... To ensure that, we have planned to digitize all our back issues from the inception of IJO and upload these on the journal's website... We are thankful to our authors, reviewers, editorial board members, all the staff at Medknow Publications and media Pvt... Ltd. and members and office bearers of IOA and hope to continue working together in this journey... We believe, together we can and together we shall attain new heights!

Mentions: Good work published should be easily retrievable by other researchers so that more work can be built on that and the results can be utilized in clinical practice. With the aim to increase visibility and ‘research impact,’ we launched a separate website for the IJO with the domain www.ijooneline.com during the IOACON 2006 at New Delhi. The website offers immediate unrestricted free access to all the content of the journal. In fact, the journal now publishes most of the articles within a few weeks of acceptance as ‘Ahead of Print’ after completing the entire pre-publishing process of technical and language editing. The back issues up to the year 2002 have also been made available online with free access. The website of the journal provides a number of user friendly features such as reference linking, article and issue level metrics such as downloads and citations, citation alerts for the authors, author institution mapping, etc. The open access policy of the journal, has led to increase in the visibility of its content globally which is reflected by number of visitors and article downloads from its website. The increased visibility of the journal led to increase in the manuscripts submitted and citations received for the published articles [Figures 1–4].
