The Author is honored to work at significant editorial posts of APSP Journal of Case Reports (AJCR) and Journal of Neonatal Surgery (JNS). AJCR is an electronic, peer reviewed, and official journal of The Association of Pediatric Surgeons of Pakistan and published thrice a year from Karachi. Journal of Neonatal Surgery is a unique e-journal dedicated only to Neonatal Surgery and published quarterly from Lahore. JNS is a joint venture of Pediatric surgeons from Pakistan and India. Both of these journals are permanently archived on PubMed Central (PMC) and can be accessed through PubMed. The author also acts as publisher of these journals. This piece of text shares author’s point of view regarding electronic Journals, based on his experience of these two electronic journals, and describes an economic publishing model and its usefulness in sustaining e-journals compared with print journals. This will provide an insight especially to scholarly bodies that are planning to start a journal about an ideal, cost effective, and sustainable publishing medium.
