Apollo Medicine completed its 17th birthday on September 18, 2021. We are proud to share that it has published all the 17 Volumes and Quarterly issues on a regular basis, without any breaks since 2004. It has provided an academic platform for researchers and clinicians to publish their research ever since its inception. The Journal has diversified the Editorial Board Members to include Editors from all over the world, as well as from other Non-Apollo hospitals and institutions. Our Editors are eminent researchers and specialists in their field of medical, surgical, and allied specialties. We have consistently welcomed contributions from all over the world.

The Journal is registered with the following abstracting partners: Baidu Scholar, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, EBSCO Publishing's Electronic Databases, Ex Libris–Primo Central, Google Scholar, Hinari, Infotrieve, ProQuest, TDNet, and Wanfang Data. In 2021, Apollo Medicine got indexed and listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). This means that our Journal has passed up to four stages of independent, objective, and manual review. It also confirms that Apollo Medicine adheres to outstanding best practices and ensures the high quality of its publishing services to the authors and users. Furthermore, this listing confirms a robust peer-review process, open-access statement, licensing terms, and a fully functional editorial board. Being indexed in DOAJ testifies that this Journal is a good, approved, reputable, and trusted open-access journal. Moreover, the National Medical Commission has approved the DOAJ listed journals (formerly known as the Medical Council of India), which is mandatory and recognized for the job promotion in teaching medical institutes.

Apollo Medicine has gained recognition worldwide during its journey so far, with an excellent international representation of the Editorial Board members, authors, and readers. The submissions to our Journal have progressively increased in recent times. We have been publishing supplementary issues for the last 2 years, in addition to the four Quarterly issues. We at Apollo Medicine strongly believe in gender diversity. Representation of females in our Editorial Board is at 22%, which is higher than the national benchmark of all the other medical journals of 14%. The Editorial Board Members are from several fields of health-care specialties both from Apollo Group and Non-Apollo Group of Hospitals. 24% of our Editorial Board Members are from overseas. We have been publishing special issues regularly, focusing on a particular medical specialty (like neurosciences, gastroenterology, and hepatology) or a disease (like COVID-19).

In the quest to improve the quality and uniformity of our publications, we have devised templates for various article types to help the authors follow. This will further standardize the process of peer reviewing for our Journal. In the last year, we have also significantly increased our social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc. Page views of Apollo Medicine have shown a significant upward trend from 136,225 to 348,714, and the article downloads have also increased from 55,535 to 93,256 in 2021. The progress of the Journal of Apollo Medicine has been satisfactory in 2021, and we are committed and optimistic that it would attain several more milestones in the near future.
