Editorial

Existing possibilities of today’s world of electronics and computing contribute to the development, advancement and popularization of various areas in science. This is why Acta Stomatologica Croatica (ASCRO) has begun a new life – an electronic one, starting with this issue. The journal is available in ISSN electronic form with open access at www.ascro.net, and communication with the authors, reviewers, editors and other members providing logistic support to ASCRO is exclusively electronic.

The outcome of the electronic concept of ASCRO has been publishing consistency due to gained time, as well a decrease in error incidence.

From month to month, ASCRO has recorded a growing number of subscribers accessing it through the internet. Judging by the number of visitors at the ASCRO web portal, there is noted international recognition, since the number of Croatian readers is equal to those from other parts of the world.

All of the aforementioned has resulted in an increased number of contributions from international authors, and I proudly present three such papers in this little volume, as I trust that their work shall peak each reader’s interest.

Apart from the changes already touched upon, as of the following edition, volume 2007;41 , the editorial staff is transferring to a special online submission program (for contributing papers). This program is a product of the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electronic Engineering and Computing, and has already been implemented by the Croatian Medical Journal’s editorial staff.

Finally, I would like to emphasize that each change up to date and every future change comes from our wish to make ASCRO as noticeable as possible, to become indexed in  world databases, maintaining and further increasing the quality of its published work. Your contribution as a reader, subscriber, author or reviewer is invaluable to us, as it helps us achieve our designated goals. For this we are immeasurably grateful.
