Dear Readers, I am pleased to mention that during the year 2019, all issues of volume 2 were published online well within the time and the print issues were also brought out and dispatched within 30 days of publishing the issue online. During the calendar year 2019, JHCT received a total of 20 papers, out of which 10 articles (50%) were rejected in the preliminary screening due to plagiarism or being out of the format. During 2019 around 7 articles were subjected to the peer-review process and 3 of those were accepted. In the Volume 2 published during the year 2019, a total of 3 articles were published (at an average of 3 articles per issue) of which, 50 % articles were by foreign authors. A total of 50% researcher from India and abroad reviewed the 3 articles published in volume 2. Average publication lag time of an article was further reduced to 6-8 weeks. I take this opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of VOLKAN KARAKUS during the final editing of articles published and the support rendered by the editorial assistant, Olivia Bratt in bringing out issues of JHCT in time. I would also like to express my gratitude to all the authors, reviewers, the publisher, the advisory and the editorial board of JHCT, the office bearers and staff of IPA secretariat for their support in bringing out yet another volume of JHCT and look forward to their unrelenting support to bring out the Volume 3 of JHCT in scheduled time.
