We are delighted to announce that Robotic Surgery: Research and Reviews (RSRR) has been accepted for indexing in PubMed and PubMed Central (Robot Surg). As a peer-reviewed, online, open access journal, articles published in RSRR are already freely available through the Dove Medical Press website. With the extra discoverability afforded by indexing in PubMed, we look forward to better serving our authors and expanding our international readership.
   RSRR welcomes original research, commentaries, reports and reviews on the theory, use and application of robotics in surgical interventions from around the world. Notably, and of great benefit to such an applied discipline as surgery, the journal also accepts video abstracts. One of our most viewed articles includes a video showing step-by-step surgical technique in robotic zero ischemia partial nephrectomy.1 Since its launch in 2013, RSRR has provided a platform for discussion of the latest surgical robotic devices,2 minimally invasive techniques,3 and their application in different surgical specialties.4,5 We also encourage articles exploring the improvement of patient outcomes, benefit to patients6 and cost-effectiveness studies.7 
   We would like to thank our editorial board, authors, peer reviewers, and readers for their contribution to the success of RSRR so far and look forward to the growth of the journal with this new chapter in its development. We welcome your submissions to RSRR.
