It gives me immense pleasure to welcome our new secretary of the Indian Association of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Dr. Mohan Kumar. He has been serving as the joint secretary for the last five years or so. The entire editorial team congratulates and wishes him the very best on assuming this responsibility.

In the midst of these changes that are happening, work continues on a more rapid pace to ensure smooth functioning of the association. At the JCD, the editorial board is extremely busy processing the large number of manuscripts being uploaded incessantly. It is extremely heartening to see the plethora of research being carried out in our country. The large number of international research papers being submitted are noteworthy and speak a lot about the journal itself. All of these make the editors' job more challenging by the day to ensure that only the best manuscripts get published. At present, we are working on a quick turnaround time after the authors upload a manuscript. Our peer-review team follows a stringent review process eliminating bias and helping us select the best. The section editors with the internal review board and the external reviewers are working round the clock to see the manuscripts are processed quickly.

It is most disheartening when your months of research gets a rejection, leading to severe dejection and frustration. The emotional turmoil and heartbreak one goes through once a paper gets rejected is understandable, and we fully empathize with all the authors who are unable to publish here and all I can say is don't lose hope because I believe every research is good. Here I would like to quote a paper by Sullivan[1] which offers an insight into what one goes through after a paper gets rejected and how to deal with the same. Similarly, rejection blues have been dealt well by Khadilkar[2] who has explained the reasons behind your paper facing a rejection. Please make it a point to go through these articles which would definitely help all the authors to come out stronger and of course winners.

Editorially yours.
