Suffering is an optional mental experience of unpleasantness and aversion associated with harm or threat of harm in an individual, whereas pain is an inevitable physical suffering [1].
Pain management is a branch of medicine involving multidisciplinary specialties including general practitioners, anesthesiologists, psychiatrists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinical pharmacists and nurse practitioners for relieving the suffering of those suffering from pain [2].
Because of the fast growth in the research of pain medicine many specialized subscription-based journals become interested in that field and assigned fixed sections in their issues for publications related to pain management. Unfortunately, these journals have rigid and slow publication schedules and they are inaccessible for most of the practitioners of pain management. This may explain the rapidly gaining acceptance for open access (OA) journals as sustainable alternatives to subscription-based scholarly publishing [3].
Open access refers to unrestricted access via the Internet to articles published in peer reviewed scholarly journals and also increasingly to book chapters or monographs. The full text of OA journals and articles can be freely read, as the publishing is funded through means other than subscriptions. A recent study on the development of publishing of Open Access journals from 1993-2009 [4], showed that the overall rapid growth in OA journal publishing over the last fifteen years. Those authors suggested three distinct periods: The Pioneering years (1993- 1999), the Innovation years (2000-2004) and the Consolidation years (2005-2009).
Scholarly peer-review offer several advantages, including expert opinion on the methods, proof of originality of ideas and methods and selection of the highest quality science. Review and publication of protocols is a paramount step for OA journals, which mandate protocol review and registration of trials at the free International eHealth Study Registry (IESR).

Pain relief has a profound impact on the improvement of quality of life of the patients. Global barriers to access to the updated publications in pain therapy may preclude the continued medical education of the practitioners of pain management which will be reflected as compromise in the quality of pain relief. The release of the first issue of the open access Pain and Relief Journal may be considered as a right step in the right way to globalize the dissemination of research findings in the field of pain medicine, accelerate early and fast publications and uptake of research findings [5]. The Pain and Relief Journal accepts the publication of the research studies of physiological, pathological and the molecular neurophysiology aspects of pain. The expected success of that newly born journal depends on the contribution of the authors, who are interesting in the field of pain medicine, from the different areas of the globe. We are looking to the rapid growing of that newborn in the near future.
