A Glimpse Behind the Scene of a Journey of Thousand Miles

DOI: 10.36351/pjo.v38i3.1461





“Journey of a thousand mile begins with a single step”. That single step for a thousand miles journey, of getting international recognition for Pakistan Journal of Ophthalmology (PJO), has been taken. It has been more than two years since the complete shifting of Pakistan Journal of Ophthalmology to online journal management system using open journal systems. Since 1st April 2020, PJO has been online on the first date of every quarter without any delay. Definitely, this did not happen in a day or two. A lot of hard work with sleepless nights of many is involved behind this achievement. It has been a roller coaster ride with so many hurdles. What readers see is only tip of the iceberg. The persistence, late nights, hard work, sacrifices, struggle, doubts, risks, criticism and courage with all the associated cardiac arrhythmias of the editor in chief/editor remain hidden from the readers.

This small piece of work might give our readers a glimpse of efforts of our laborious and adventurous excursion of many years.
