||This journal is 58 years old with a publishing identity, style, and quality that has been increasingly recognized throughout Latin America and is indexed in Lilacs, Scielo, and Latindex. Our journal has applied for indexation in the Index Medicus of the USA National Library of Medicine, but unfortunately it has been not selected. Sociedad de Neurología Psiquatría y Neurocirugía (Sonepsyn) and Revista Chilena de Neuro-Psiquiatría should use this answer as an opportunity to consider deeply the journal we have, the one we want, and need, and then to decide whether to continue with the attempt to be indexed and if we are indeed in a position to reach this goal. If we should choose to reapply for indexation in Index Medicus, this will require backing in terms of financing and policy, prioritization and dedication from the next Sonepsyn Board of Directors, professionalization of the publishing committee and of the support team: secretary, abstract translator, proofreader, web page handler, medical illustration specialist, and above all, the contributions from researchers and authors to publish their best papers with us and to cite regularly the papers published in this journal. If we choose not to make indexation in the Index Medicus a primary goal, we need to move into a more pragmatic view in deciding what kind of journal we want and need, one that is not necessarily less responsible, transcendental, or useful.|
