Formal training in research is lacking most of the medical training programs of the world. Research can be of great help in producing more physician scientists. Students' journals can encourage research amongst medical students. But student journals face a lot of problems. The editors are students who are busy with their curricula. Moreover, there is no compensation. Additionally, since, not many student journals are visible, students doing research try and submit to prestigious journals and when face rejection, get de-motivated. There is no single solution to all the problems faced by a student journal. However, it needs to be appreciated that they are a necessity, hence, they should be encouraged actively. Collaboration between the multiple stakeholders involved (funding agencies, institutions, experts on biomedical ethics, student researchers and their faculty mentors) is the need of the hour to further expand and empower the existing student journals and set up new ones.
