Dear Sir,

The thought of having a photo gallery of authors and reviewers at first instance gives a mixed feeling about its benefits. On deeper thought it does makes sense of having a photo gallery in Journal. Many times we read the names of authors which are same or similar, which often confuses us, but a photograph helps us to identify them. It not only gives better recognition to authors but also helps the readers to know them better. As a visual memory, it would help the readers to remember and cite article with author’s identity when required. Some journals do give authors photographs but only in of main author and only in some section. Having a photo gallery including all authors in all formats of publication just extends it purpose. As mentioned in earlier Editorial this will truly help in developing a personalized journal and a strong academic network too [1]
I feel reviewers are the backbone for functioning of the journal. They usually are unnoted and overlooked. Having a photo gallery for reviewers in every issue gives them acknowledgment and probably motivates them in their work. Thus photo gallery of authors and reviewers in the journal is an innovative and useful step taken by JOCR which can revolutionize journal presentation.
I feel it would soon become a standard for every journal.
