Message by the Chairman & Chief Editor of Proceedings
Bismillah Hir Rehman Nir Raheem.
As we publish our first Edition for this year, the January to April 2019 Proceedings Edition it’s time to joyously reflect at the previous year’s work. We are pleased to inform our contributors regarding the expanded Editorial and Peer Reviewer Board which oversaw the first four editions in the 30 year history of Proceedings, published between Dec2017 – Dec2018. Over 70 articles were submitted for publication during this period and judged on stringent international standards of plagiarism and blind peer reviews. PMDC renewal has also been received till Dec 2019. We were one of the 17 journals renewed by the PMDC out of the 72 who applied from all over the country. Alhumdolillah.
We have achieved expanded viewership as many researchers in varied medical fields have expressed interest in publishing their research with Proceedings. Addition of the unique CPC data presented by the clinical departments at SZMC will further expand our research database. A plan to publish this significant amount of research work in the form of Research Work Supplements is in the offing. These will have to pass through our raised standards of scientific research and at a relentless pace required for maintaining our quarterly publication target. The nexus of undergraduate and postgraduate researchers, supervisors and senior faculty members is imperative to achieving rigorous standards for research and writing of projects with timely and accurate critique to entertain these manuscripts in Proceedings. Our future goals are HEC and International indexation. We hope creating R&D Department at SZMC in collaboration with The National Health Research Complex (NHRC), developing a new Proceedings website of international standards and building linkages with top journals and researchers both in the country and abroad. In sha Allah.
