Dear readers!

Thanks to the enthusiasm of Professor Zdenko Njemirovskij and his colleagues - and for the benefit of the dental profession – 1966 saw first publication of the scientific journal Acta Stomatologica Croatica (ASCRO). Since then and until today, already for 40 years, ASCRO is published continuously. Every year there was one volume consisting of four issues. During this time, different editorial concepts were implemented, but always with the same aim – the increase of quantity and quality of its contents, as well as keeping up-to-date with the technological standards.

Given the circumstances of the on-going international reforms in the scientific and educational sector in Croatia – redesign of the high education according to the Bologna Declaration as a part of the preparation of the Republic of Croatia to join the European Union – the ultimate objective of the editorial concept of ASCRO will be to follow the new challenges in that respect.

We will respect the criteria and recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and act towards increasing the quality of the journal, ensuring its timely and continuous publishing and making it available on-line for the Internet users worldwide. All of the above are the main tasks of the new editorial board and, starting from this issue, the ASCRO is – apart from the printed version - also available on the network web portal: www.ascro.net

The journal is addressing the following target groups – scientists, practicing dentists, specialists of different dental clinical disciplines and students. It is our wish to increase the number of subscribers and active readers.

Members of the Editorial board, selected by the criteria of their international scientific recognizability, will strive to contribute to the increase of the quality level and popularization of the ASCRO as reviewers and consultants as well as authors of invited papers.

Finally, I would like to thank you on behalf of the publishers, of the editorial board and myself, for all of the advice, scientific and clinical papers and reviews provided. I would also like to thank you for the attention you have already given us by reading this issue.
