Dear readers!

At the beginning of the 43rd volume in the year of 2009 I would like to inform you about the results of Acta Stomatologica Croatica (ASCRO) in the year gone by. Our journal was published regularly, four times in 2008. Volume 42 was completed with four editions in printed and in on-line version by December 25th 2008.

ASCRO is still being printed in 1200 copies which are distributed by “Hrvatska pošta” to all the members of the Croatian Dental Society CMA, subscribers and publishers whose journals are exchanged for ASCRO.

Last volume has included 33 articles, 13 by Croatian and 20 by non-Croatian authors; 65% were scientific, 8% were reviews and 27% were case presentations.

All manuscripts were submitted by means of an electronic programme and distributed for peer reviews. The frequency of international reviewers when compared to Croatian was 56 to 44%; this fulfilled my intention to harmonize the number of reviewers to 50:50% in comparison to last year.

Volume 42 has also included over 170 abstracts from the 2nd Congress of the Croatian Society of Dental Implantology CMA and 4th International Congress of the Croatian Dental Society CMA, as well as from the 1st Congress of the Croatian Society of Oral Medicine and Pathology CMA.

The number of ASCRO Online readers has almost tripled when compared to last volume (November 2007 – 2361, November 2008 – 7447).

Publishing, language editing, distribution and electronic preparation was financed by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, by subscriptions, CDS CMA and Colgate, for which I am most thankful.

In the end, as a gift to You, our faithful readers, and thanks to the Global Institute for Dental Education (GIDE), we are offering you an online lecture held by our colleague Sascha Jovanovic. You can see it by using the password and user name which you can find HERE.
