The Board of Directors, Councilors of the INDO-US Academic Council for Emergency and Trauma as well as the Board of Editors of JETS proudly present the inaugural issue of our journal, which will synergize Basic Sciences, Clinical Medicine and Global Health in the fields of Emergency Medicine, Traumatology and Shock Resuscitation, thus leading the way for the establishment and growth of Translational Research in the field of Acute Care.

Investigations with human subjects are a result of knowledge obtained from basic research with genes, cells or animals, which is then translated into diagnostic or therapeutic interventions that can be applied to treatment or prevention of disease. The mission of bench to bedside research is to translate the basic science discoveries into clinical applications and to use the clinical observations to generate research foci for basic science. JETS will encourage the promotion of such novel research.

   The Critical Importance of Synergy Top

Basic scientists need to have an understanding of the realities of the human condition. Without that intersection between basic science and the clinic, discoveries made at the research bench may have little relevance or application to the real-life human situation and developing effective therapies. These findings later have to be applied to mass populations; hence, the role of public health research is vital.

Trauma, Emergency and Shock research have their foundations in basic laboratory science. Translational research is the process of applying ideas, insights and discoveries generated through basic scientific inquiry to the treatment or prevention of human disease. This currently is the most dynamic and active area of the scientific discipline. In 2005, "better translation of findings into patient care through guidelines" was at the top of the list of seven research priorities of the CDC updated Acute Care chapter of the 2002 agenda.

Our Editorial Board has been meticulously chosen from experts around the globe and spans from areas of pre-hospital care, toxicology, trauma care, basic sciences, simulation technology, medical education and critical care to encompass the neonatal, pediatric and geriatric age groups.

We will publish scientific contributions such as Original Articles, Review Articles, Case Reports, Case Series, Clinical Trials, Clinical Investigations, Interesting Photographs, Radiology and EKGs and Expert Commentaries. The journal is peer reviewed and indexed. Article Submission and Peer Review is fully Online and Web Based.

We would encourage you to submit scientific work and hope to hear from you soon.

Mark Sanborn in his article "The marks of distinction" emphasizes the need for growing oneself in order to grow the people around you. The resultant success flows from the ability of leaders and their team. He further makes a point that this growth should be channelized to offer and achieve excellence in areas, which are distinctive.

Further Information:

Journal of Emergencies Trauma and Shock (JETS) is the official journal of the INDO-US Emergency and Trauma Collaborative.

JETS encourages research, education and dissemination of knowledge in the fields of Emergency Medicine, Traumatology and Shock Resuscitation, thus promoting translational research by striking a synergy between basic science, clinical medicine and global health.

JETS aims for wider dissemination of information and sharing of knowledge. Hence, the journal would not be restricted to its print edition or subscribers of the journal. JETS will be available to anyone who has internet access for reading, download and printing. This access will not be limited by for any particular period but would be perpetual.

The journal will be published semiannually (June and December) in 2008 and quarterly from 2009 (January, April, July and October). Though the issues are published on fixed schedules, JETS would publish articles on its web site immediately on acceptance.

Though, JETS holds the copyright of its contents, it allows authors and readers to use its material for scientific, non-commercial purposes, without requiring to take permission from its editor or publisher.

INDO-US Emergency and Trauma Collaborative:

The INDO-US partnership exists at many levels and in many areas. In the field of Emergency Medicine and Trauma, this collaboration is an academic effort between University of South Florida in the United States and All India Institute of Medical Sciences in India. The partnership enjoys the support of the World Association of Disaster and Emergency Medicine.

The main mission of this partnership is to foster the growth of academic medicine in the fields of Emergency Care and Traumatology. The collaborative promotes exchange of knowledge and mutual development between academic institutions in India and the United States.

The INDO-US Collaborative firmly believes that Medical Colleges are ideal environments for growth and development of Emergency and Trauma Academics in India. These teaching institutions provide the adequate and diverse patient volume, which forms the right milieu needed to grow these sciences in India.

JETS is one of the leading initiatives by the collaborative. The other initiatives include the Academic Council of Emergency and Trauma and its Newsletter called TEAMS (Trauma and Emergency Academic Medicine Sentinel). The collaborative also promotes an INDO-US Emergency Medicine and Trauma Education Center for Health, which conducts year-round training programs and workshops. The INDO-US Collaborative annually hosts a Level One Academic Meeting called INDO-US Emergency Medicine Summit. It attracts a large number of Faculty, Physicians, Medical Students, Nurses, Paramedics and Residents from India and USA.

Medknow Publications:

Medknow Publications, a publisher of open access peer-reviewed, scientific journals, is committed to the improving the visibility and accessibility of the science from the developing world. Its endeavor in continuously re-inventing the publishing methodology for about a decade has resulted in high quality peer-reviewed scholarly journals. Medknow pioneers in 'fee-less-free' model of open access publishing and provides immediate free access to the electronic editions of the journals without charging the author or author's institution for submission, processing or publication of the articles. Medknow, with over 65 print + online journals, is probably the largest open access publisher of print journals in the world which does not charge author or author institution for submission, processing or publication of articles. Each journal published by Medknow has its independent website. The websites use the OpenURL standard, making it easy for libraries to link users as directly as possible from citation to the full text of the article. These journals are searchable from DOAJ ( and are part of HINARI. All the journals provide RSS feeds which is also ATOM enabled. All the issues are also available in XML format. The open access policy has resulted in more than a half a million article downloads in a month for all the journals.
