This is not really a surprise, since we have been placing all our efforts in the renovation of the journal in the last years, in order to improve its quality and its adequacy to current agricultural issues. In particular, we increased rejection from about 40% to 80% in 2005, we set more ecological topics, and we actively sought authors of review articles. We are very pleased to see that these efforts in the selection, evaluation, and correction of the articles have borne fruit.
