We are proud and honored to launch the inaugural issue of the Journal of Nature and Science of Medicine (JNSM). The JNSM is a new peer-reviewed biomedical publication, which is sponsored by the College of Medicine at King Saud University and authored and supported by leading national and international physicians and scientists. This is a profoundly interdisciplinary, international, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on clinical practice, translational medicine, medical education, public health, health policy, and general topics of interest to the biomedical research community. The JNSM aims to complement other general medical journals and to link with them to exchange experiences.

The JNSM will be initially published as two issues per year, and with contributions from national and international physicians and scientists, we aim to increase the frequency to four issues per year starting 2019. There are no submission fees, no page or other publication charges, and no subscription fees. Articles will be published on the Journal's website (https://www.jnsmonline.org) upon acceptance and be freely available.

The JNSM targets researchers in clinical practice, translational medicine, medical education, and public health. Moreover, we aim to promote this journal as an international journal by inviting international experts to join the editorial board. Additional audiences include graduate medical students, interns, house officers, fellows, specialists, and also generalists.

In the forthcoming issues, our journal seeks to publish original, high-quality, peer-reviewed papers including original clinical and basic biomedical research; reviews; quality improvement reports; and editorials, book reviews, and correspondence on clinical matters that will provide comprehensive coverage on all aspects and subspecialties of medicine.

The JNSM will be orchestrated under the collaborative work of the Editor-in-Chief, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, associate editors, and a multidisciplinary national and international editorial board along with an editorial advisory board. Leading national, regional, and international experts will contribute to the journal, which means the content of the journal will cover virtually every core as well as contemporary topic in medicine, from the established theories to the most modern research and development in medical sciences.

On this occasion, I would like to thank many people who have worked diligently behind the scenes to bring this inaugural issue to light. We would like to express our gratitude to the leadership of King Saud University and the related University councils for their advice, reviews, and acceptance of our proposal. I am deeply inspired by and appreciative to Professor Khalid Fouda (the Dean of the College of Medicine) and Dr. Majid Al Madi (Vice Dean and Deputy Editor-in-Chief), for providing valuable support throughout the preparation and presentation of the proposal and the process for publication of the inaugural issue. I would also like to thank the associate editors, Professor Ahmad Hersi, Professor Assim Alfadda, Professor Ali Somili, and Dr. Abdulrahman Alsultan, who will be the backbone of this journal and for taking up this challenging role.

This launch of the JNSM would not have been possible without the experienced and devoted editorial board members who willingly signed up for time-consuming workloads and enthusiastically agreed to provide their critical input to the review process.

Thank you all for your trust and support. Indeed, it is a real honor to serve as the founding Editors-in-Chief.
