It gives us great pleasure to launch the inaugural issue of the Annals of Movement Disorders (AOMD)—the official journal of the Movement Disorders Society of India (MDSI). The MDSI was formed in 2014 by a group of movement disorders specialists from India and this journal is one of the outcomes that the MDSI had planned.

The thought behind the journal is to cater to publication of original research, state-of-the-art scientific reviews, and novel case reports dedicated to movement disorders with no publication charge. This will be one of the few journals globally that can be a platform for clinicians and basic science researchers in movement disorders to showcase/publish their research work.

AOMD is an Open Access journal with no charge for submission, processing, or publication of manuscripts. The scope includes original research articles, review articles, brief communications, case reports, and letters to the editor covering Clinical, Paraclinical, and Basic Sciences relating to movement disorders. The journal will also support online submission of high-quality videos. All articles in AOMD are peer reviewed through a blinded methodology to maintain the standards of the journal. The current plan is to release three publications a year online and in print.

I am confident that with the quality of work that is being done across the globe, there will be thought-provoking and interesting content that will get published and AOMD will be a great resource for both authors and readers.

As we bring out this first issue, we miss Prof. Shyamal Das, one of the pioneers in research in movement disorders and the past president of the MDSI, whose vision was to start a journal like this.

This inaugural issue of AOMD is dedicated to him.
