My colleagues and I were proud and delighted to see our articles published in the early issues of the Asian Journal of Neurosurgery. In doing so we were playing a small role in helping to foster the marvelous educational efforts directed toward young neurosurgeons in Asia, by Professors Kanno and Kato. The Journal reflects their unflagging energy and dedication to this laudable goal. Its evolving success and impact have benefited many neurosurgeons, their students and colleagues, and, most of all, their patients. It is an honor for me to serve on the International Editorial Board.

Modern Neurosurgery demands an ever increasing Neuroscience database. It is driven by novel concepts and technical improvements. This Journal provides a record and a stimulus for these advances. It recognizes that it is the vigor and intellectual capacity of young neurosurgeons that are the keys to progress in our field.

The Journal is complementary to other educational efforts such as Regional, National, and International Neurosurgical meetings. An important initiative of the Society that sponsors the Journal (The Asian CNS), and of its founders and leaders, has been the highly effective regional Workshops on Skull Base Surgery and other subspecialty areas in Neurosurgery. This multifactorial approach will surely achieve its goals of creating high standards of education and Neurosurgical practice in all of Asia.
