I want to announce that today September 15th we released newest issue 3-4, Vol.15 of Journal of Special Education and Rehabilitation. Here is editorial preface.
The goal of each publishing office is to increase the visibility of the magazine and its access to as many readers and authors as possible. The author of these lines makes huge efforts in posting daily articles on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and related social media to achieve that goal. In the last year, the magazine has increased its metrics. For example, Google Scholar has assigned values h5 index: 3; h5-median to the magazine: 4. on the other side, for the first time we are indexed in the seminal SCImago database that is directly related to the database Scopus. The bibliometric information for 2013 is the following: SNIP: 0.119; SJR: 0.12; IPP: 0.07. In the last month, the magazine is resubmitted for re-evaluation in Medilne and by February 2015 we expect the results and for first time, it is submitted for indexation in PubMed Central. However, despite these successes, the publishing office cannot provide good quality and dedicated web-administrator who will quite professionally keep the online version of the magazine that you can find at the following link: http://jser.fzf.ukim.edu .mk. We sincerely hope that the publishing council will find incentives and finances to ensure smooth work of this very important part of the magazine.
In the rubric News and Information the readers will be informed about the celebration of April 2nd, the International Day of Persons with Autism. Irena Novacheska writes about the International Congress on Education and Rehabilitation Faculty in Zagreb, held from 11 to 13 April this year. The last news from this edition is the international symposium Newest medical views on trisomy 21 and autism held in May in Croatia. Then, there is an abstract from a doctoral thesis defended by our colleague Aleksandra Karovska Ristovska titled: Comparative analysis of the structure of the Macedonian and American Sign Language.
As in all previous editions, you will read the regular rubrics: Bibliography, List of reviewers and Author Index.
The publication of scientific papers in international journals by the M.A and PhD students should not be just an obligation and duty of every young scientist, but it should be a noble task towards self-recognition and increased visibility of the young colleagues in the world of science. Who cannot understand this, has probably wandered in the scientific waters.
