SEEFOR 4 (2): 57-57
With great pleasure we would like to inform you and introduce you to some changes that have been done both in the printed and the online version of the journal all in order to improve and enhance the journal’s quality.
First, you will notice that the layout of the papers in the printed version has undergone some minor changes. We have tried to improve the visual appearance as well as provide more information on the main page of each paper. Nevertheless, the biggest change is the new journal’s website (www.seefor.eu) where you can find much more information on the journal, its publication policy, the publishing procedure, etc.
The novelty is the online submission of the manuscript which substantially reduces the editorial processing and reviewing time and shortens the overall publication time. It also allows authors to follow the whole editorial process and check the status of their manuscript.
We have also sought to expedite the publishing time by introducing Next Issue - Early View section. As soon as they are accepted and prepared in the final format, the papers are published online and can be accessed within the Next Issue - Early View section. Every six months, the online published papers will be page-numbered and published in the new, upcoming SEEFOR issue.
We will continue with the Open Access policy of the journal which provides free access to full-text papers in pdf or html format. The full-text papers in html have been available since 2013, from Volume 4 Number 1. For earlier issues abstracts of the papers in html will be available soon.
Please visit our new website and register as a reader, author and/or potential reviewer. You are also invited to contribute to the journal with your valuable research. We have issued a call for papers for the next issue (Vol 5 No 1) which is scheduled to be published on 31st June 2014. However, as soon as they are accepted, the papers will be published online in the Next Issue – Early View section. Submission deadline is 31st March 2014.
We hope you will like the new ‘refreshed’ look of the journal and stay or become our faithful reader.
