yaghoobi-mohammadIt is my pleasure to present the second issue of the ACG Case Reports Journal. This issue covers unusual but important clinical scenarios, interesting images, and novel endoscopic techniques. The members of the Editorial Board were again impressed with the number and quality of submissions. We are committed to providing an opportunity for young gastroenterologists and gastroenterology fellows to contribute to the literature, and are pleased by the overwhelmingly positive response to the Journal. The current term for the Editorial Board will end in June 2014, and the invitation for new applications will be posted on our website within the next few weeks. I encourage all interested gastroenterology fellows who will still be in training through June 2015 to apply for a position. This experience will help prepare you for your future academic career by familiarizing you with the process and criteria of reviewing and publishing manuscripts. So far, it has been a fascinating experience to serve on the Editorial Board of a new journal. I have been honored to work in a friendly environment with other members of the Editorial Board and the ACG Publications Committee, and I am sure you will be delighted to be part of this too. I hope you enjoy reading this issue of the ACG Case Reports Journal.Mohammad Yaghoobi, MD, MSc, AFS
