The Egyptian Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, the official publication of the Egyptian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, was launched in October 2010 as a biannual publication. The editorial of the first issue suggested that the number of issues per year would increase according to the increase in the number of submitted articles.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that during the last year, the number of submitted articles increased appreciably and the issue tripled in size, which will enable us to publish three issues per year starting 2012. This increase in the number of issues per year will reduce the waiting period for an article to be published.
On behalf of the editorial board, I would like to express my gratitude to our eminent international advisory board, reviewers, and to all the members of EAOMS for their continued support. I would also like to express my gratitude to Lippincott Williams & Wilkins for their publishing effort and to the Egyptian Academy of Science and Technology.
