Dear Editors, Members of the International Editorial Board, Authors and Readers of the Articles of “The Baltic Journal of Road and Bridge Engineering”,

 
 

 

At the outset of New Year 2010, we look at the preceding year 2009 as a period of sincere work, large challengers and unexpected changes. This year, in the face of the worldwide economic recession vortices, The Baltic Journal of Road and Bridge Engineering has further grown and improved: the successfully implemented Gross Check program has helped with protecting the articles of the Journal from plagiarism possibilities, an increase in the Journal Impact Factor has reached index 1.6, thus allowing to take up the eighth position in the worldwide ranking among 91 journals of Civil Engineering in the ISI Database and publishing the Journal was agreed to be further supported by the Baltic Road Association.

In the year of the economic crisis, financing scientific researches has been reduced. However, a wish of scientists, engineers and students to perfect themselves and get ready for the processes of economic recovery has increased. These tendencies give us hope that a number of our subscribers will steadily grow in the future.

This year, the geography of the authors publishing scientific articles has widened (the articles have already been sent by the scientists from China, Japan, the USA, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom etc.). Two new members have joined the International Editorial Board of the Journal (Assoc. Prof. Dr Filippo Giammaria Praticò from Italy and Prof. Miroslaw J. Skibniewski from the USA). Regrettably, we have also lost Julius Christauskas who was one of the members of our editorial staff and Assoc. Prof. at the Road Department of Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. Julius Christauskas worked for the Journal since the very start of the periodical, and therefore his colleagues will always remember the days spent together.

On the eve of Merry Christmas and a New Year, I wish you all a festive mood, good health, endless patience, creative success, high aims and realization of expectations.

 

 

On behalf of the Editorial Board
