As Editor-In-Chief of the SJSS, I welcome you to this full, open access, electronic journal of soil science. This journal has been created to provide a reference point in the scientific literature for this specific area of knowledge.
Within its scope, the journal will therefore endea- vour to publish original, relevant, and high-quality research.
This will be possible thanks to the collaboration of the publisher Universia and the scientific knowledge provided by its predecessors: the journals Anales de Edafología y Agrobiología, Suelo y Planta, and Edafología, which have allowed the dissemination of advances in soil science in Spanish.
We offer a new platform for showcasing the latest advances in soil science, within a framework ap- propriate for digital distribution technologies, which provides wide accessibility for both authors and readers. The contributions are to be mainly presen- ted in English, in order to achieve optimal disse- mination, although there will also be contributions in Spanish and Portuguese. Finally, I would like to stress that, from the very beginning, the Spanish Journal of Soil Science (SJSS) plans to meet the quality requirements of international scientific publi- cations. Its content will therefore be evaluated with a view to indexing the publication and incorporating it into the main catalogues and databases within the shortest possible time.
We look forward to receiving your submissions. Best wishes,
Dr. Rosa M. Poch
