AbstractThe year is certainly progressing and the second edition of our journal not only confirms that winter (of discontent for some) is soon to pass but also that the warmer and friendlier disposition of spring (for most) will be at hand. Our journal has likewise basked in this improved climate of continued growth and this success has necessarily placed more demands on its panel of reviewers both those that are thankfully efficient and obliging and also those who are equally, if not more efficient at being non-obliging. I must also offer respectful and sincere gratitude to the ever growing number of foreign and local authors who submitted manuscripts to JEMDSA for consideration.
