Innovation is taking two things that already exist and

putting them together in a new way.

The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) from a previous DTJournal's editorial became for us a role model not only as a perfect example how the Editorial Fellowship1 should be organized but also motivate us to launch a new Section – Similar to Images in Clinical Medicine2 we are starting a Section Pics in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.3


Advantages of that Section according to our opinion are: 1) one-page publication, 2) it includes short description (in average, 161 words) of clinical condition, treatment, follow-up (what reduces an author`s time), 3) have one2, two4, or three5 images, and, sometimes, a supplemental video,6 4) images have no description below as they have in-text descriptions (what a brilliant idea from NEJM`s staff), 5) have no references (what increases as well the speed of article’s writing, decreases time and cost of lay-out), and 6) can be indexed in PubMed/ MEDLINE similar to research and reports papers, etc.


In conclusion, we are thrilled to introduce you a founding section`s editor Dr. Camilo Mosquera from Bogotá. Who`s made a strong impact in DTJournal with his Columbian colleagues presenting a delightful article dedicated to paragonimiasis.7
