Dear Friends,

1968! The birth of the Journal of the Indian Orthodontic Society. It is a proud and joyous moment for the Indian Orthodontic Society that the Journal of the Indian Orthodontic Society has been celebrating its Golden Jubilee this year. The Indian Orthodontic Society celebrated its Golden Jubilee just 3 years ago. This showcases the fact that after the founding of our beloved society, it just took 3 years for us to start our own journal. Over the years, our journal has grown leaps and bounds and now is considered one of the most reputed journals worldwide. I cannot imagine what the founding members of IOS may have envisioned about the development and growth of the Society, but I do not think they ever dreamed that the Society would have a journal with the scope, breadth, and impact that characterizes JIOS today. What I can imagine is that, although we pause to celebrate 50 years of the JIOS, the art and science of orthodontics will continue to advance, and the collective efforts of all our IOS members will continue to impact the quality of treatment rendered to our patients. The JIOS I am sure will become one of the premier orthodontic journals throughout the orthodontic diaspora as it continues to grow in reputation for its quality of content due to contributions from national and international authors. Today we see that the articles submitted for publication are truly excellent and it is indeed a pat on our back that there is a waitlist for the articles to be published.

The journal has so far seen 12 editors and I would personally and on behalf of the Indian Orthodontic Society like to thank each and every editor for the tremendous and stupendous hard work put in by them to bring the journal to its current excellent standard. IOS is forever indebted to them. IOS is also forever indebted to all the contributing authors, all the members on the editorial board and advisory board, board of reviewers and all the back end staff. I greatly appreciate the willingness of the contributing authors to devote considerable time to writing important articles and the collective efforts of the Editorial team of JIOS who helped to develop the content, identify authors, and review the articles submitted for publication. In effect today the journal stands proudly amongst its peers due to the dedication shown by all these members.

It needs to be mentioned that the current editor Dr. Sridevi has definitely taken our journal to a new level. The incoming new editor and his team, I am sure, will continue the good work and take our journal to greater heights.

My best wishes to the continuing growth of our journal and I hope more of our members contribute towards the journal by submitting articles which are noteworthy.


Dear Members,

I feel very proud that our journal, the Journal of Indian Orthodontic Society has completed 50 years. The journal has been an integral part of the IOS since its inception in 1968.

On behalf of the IOS head office and the membership I congratulate the editors, editorial team and the reviewers of the JIOS for marking this special event with this special issue.

Dr. C. Deepak

Hon Secretary, Indian Orthodontic Society

I am extremely happy that the Editorial team is bringing out a special issue to commemorate the 50th year of the journal. The journal has been an integral part of the society since its inception and showcases the excellent work of our members. The journal has gone from strength to strength since its beginning in 1968 and I am sure it will grow further as a reflection of the scientific strength of the Indian Orthodontic community.

On this special occasion, I wish the entire editorial team for their efforts in marking this unique occasion with this issue.

Dr. Pradeep Jain

President Elect, Indian Orthoodntic Society

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”

It has been long 50 years since IOS started the Journal of Indian Orthodontic Society for which contribution of the articles periodically from the members and support from our sponsors had brought it long way. The Editorial Board team puts in a lot of efforts in scrutinizing and shortlisting the articles. The research enterprise continues to show strong growth, and continues to earn accolades across the country and beyond.

We look forward to the same cooperation in the future.

Dr. Balvinder Singh Thakkar

Vice President: Indian Orthodontic Society

Congratulations to the Editorial Board of Journal of Indian Orthodontic society as they complete 50 years of its Publication.{1968-2018}

A Big milestone and a Great Achievement for any scientific, Peer reviewed, professional Journal and 50 years of SERVICE to Orthodontic Community.

Having started in 1968 by Dr HD Merchant, the then President and founder member of IOS, as first Editor, our Journal has grown by leaps and bounds and all the editors have worked hard and immensely contributed. A Big Accomplishment and they have nurtured and shown us the Growth and development of the journal to its present status.

Now JIOS has become an integral part of all Orthodontic Teachers, Practitioners and Post graduates. The Journal has stood for excellence in article selection, Review and Final publication.

Congratulations to all Past and Present Editors of JIOS for their dedication in giving a quality Orthodontic Journal.

The future of JIOS looks Great and brighter and the day is not far to see JIOS in Pubmed Indexing.

With Best Wishes


Dr. G. Chandra Sekhar

Immediate Past President, Indian Orthodontic Society

I am very happy that a special issue is being brought out to commemorate the 50th year of the JIOS.

It has been a pleasure to work for the IOS throughout the last 50 years

A scientific journal of a Society reflects its commitment to the advancement of the science as well as the spread of knowledge of its current and past status and serves as a great link amongst the members.The current Editor has always sought the improvement of our journal and if I may say so ,with her team has done a splendid job.

As a past Editor of our journal I am aware of the trials and tribulations of an EDITOR and we need a forward innovative visionary type of an individual who will rise to the challenges and you have done an admirable job as have the other past Editors.

One way forward (and it is only one of the ways) is to suggest to the various Unversities that on submission of a thesis along with that a journal printable format should be submitted This would not only make us aware but would also encourage performance. Of course the editorial committee will have the final say.

The various study groups could also organise a competition for good articles .

Many ideas have been tried but I feel we can rise above the past and try and do better.

At 83 now I would like to use this opportunity to wish all our members the best of success and good health. God Bless.

Dr. Keki M.Mistry

Past Editor, JIOS
