Dear Readers,
I would like to believe that you have already started enjoying your summer vacation. Given the fact that you are now trying to feel comfortable, to find as much time as possible to relax, I want to briefly share with you the current situation of the Stomatology Edu Journal (Stoma Edu J), the journal you have shown your interest for since 2014.

The Stomatology Edu Journal (Stoma Edu J), an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal, has been published continuously since 2014, initially bi-annually, and as of 2016, quarterly. So far, it has managed to have over 240,000 readers.
This performance is indeed an achievement of the Operative Editorial Team, but also of the very numerous Editorial Board, who very kindly agreed to contribute to the consolidation of a new journal in Central and Eastern Europe, addressing mainly the dental practitioners in Romania and the Republic of Moldova.
From the very beginning the Stomatology Edu Journal (Stoma Edu J), via its tireless Operative Editorial Team, adopted the quality recommendations imposed by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), with which it also registered.
Prof. Jean-François Roulet’s exceptional editorial expertise and his permanent struggle to raise the quality standard of each published article have led to the publication of over 120 articles, individualized through DOI by Crossref. Out of them all, a total of 61 articles were credited by the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
The authors, regardless of their nationality, be they native Romanians or Moldovans or foreigners (originating in one of the over 40 countries where the editors come from), do appreciate the progress achieved by the Stomatology Edu Journal (Stoma Edu J), but have constantly raised the issue of its certification.
The Stomatology Edu Journal (Stoma Edu J) has been under evaluation by Clarivate Analytics for over a year, and we will receive an answer only after the publication of this year’s second issue.
The Stomatology Edu Journal (Stoma Edu J) is also being evaluated by PubMed / PMC / MEDLINE.
Dear Readers,
When we know the result of the evaluation of the Stomatology Edu Journal (Stoma Edu J) we will immediately communicate it to you. Both our Authors and Editors hope that their tireless work to provide you with quality articles will be rewarded with our certification as soon as possible.

May God help us all!
