Starting a new journal is generally a difficult, brave and sometimes foolhardy pursuit. Finding publishers, appointing editors, recruiting editorial board members, calling for manuscripts, selecting peer reviewers who will deliver on time and finding substitutes when they do not, and all of this initially without accreditation at the major medical indices, which makes authors understandably reluctant to commit their best work when it cannot be cited yet. The International Journal of Wine Research (IJWR) is no exception, but it did have the advantage that the publisher Dove Medical Press was more than willing to promote a new journal in this important and growing area of science.
