Indian Journal of Paediatric Dermatology is entering a new era. With this issue of the journal, it joins hands with the veteran publisher, Medknow Publications and Media Pvt. Ltd. Wolters Kluwer Health Medical Research. It will give the journal a new look and direction, and in future, this journal will be an inseparable part of the reading of pediatric dermatologists all over the world. With the cooperation of our new partner, the Indian dermatologists will have a great opportunity to exchange views with their peers elsewhere. This will help the specialty grow beyond boundaries.

To mark this historic moment, this issue of IJPD has a symposium on a very important pediatric dermatosis, childhood psoriasis. This symposium will give an overall idea of childhood psoriasis so that better care may be given to the patients.

Collagen vascular diseases are always a challenge, more so in the pediatric age group. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is becoming more and more important. Since the disease has a lot of features on the skin, dermatologists are at an advantageous position to make an early definitive diagnosis. The continuing medical education feature will help us to brush up our understanding of SLE.

Vitiligo patients are suffering from stigmatization. The concept of pathogenesis is changing. In view point, a glimpse of new thoughts can be had.

Knowledge of pathology of disease is very important for proper understanding of any disease. From this issue onward, we are planning to serialize "Pathology for Dermatologists."

Obviously, original articles are lacking in this issue. In the coming issues, these gaps will be filled up.

The features like case reports and "How I manage" are there. This will form a good reading.

With these, we enter a new era of publication of IJPD.
