Respected Doctor, Selcuk Tunali, MD, PhD:

We have read “An opinion about ‘International Journal of Anatomical Variations” [1,2] and its aptly written but many aspects of this great journal are missing. So we just wish to convey our thoughts to esteem readers of this journal. We would like to put following points which might be missed by earlier authors pertaining to advantage of this journal.

1) The articles are available online and site being updated regularly.

2) Online submission and very quick reviewing process controls unnecessary delay which generally other journals take.

3) No charge for publication which is really rare amongst reputed journals*.

4) Most of the findings (variations) remain undisclosed due to paucity of such journal at national level. Hence this journal plays crucial role being only journal only for variations.

5) Not only anatomist but this is of great help to surgeons too in their clinical practice and similarly for forensic people also.

6) Really good quality of figures.

We are regular readers of this journal and articles which we liked most in the latest issue are article by Mourgela et al. [3] and article by Doll S [4].

We would like to conclude our letter with a fact that as many as fifteen types of variations in branching pattern of arch of aorta is seen with left common carotid artery originating from aorta itself being most common among them.
A big salute is mandatory to editor and all persons associated with this journal. We wish all the best for prosperity and wide readership for this journal.
