As a new year is coming, this is a proper time to evaluate what we have done,, think our expectations over and define new goals. IJHDR is completing its 6th year with full satisfaction for having fulfilled its mission of providing authors and readers a fully open access multimedia journal focused on High Dilution Research that functions as an unbiased vehicle for the diffusion of new ideas and research results. This heavy but pleasant task is currently performed by a small number of editors with the support of reviewers and authors from all over the world! In 2014, IJHDR will try to grow even more by applying to several databases and adopting new editorial rules and guidelines for authors. To meet those challenges, a new editorial structure ought to be implemented. This topic will be in the agenda all throughout 2014!
What does IJHDR expect from authors? Possibly too many things!!! New experimental evidences and methodological refinements are expected from the collaboration among various international groups, centers and universities. The discussion concerning the possible participation of nanostructures in the mechanism of action of HD must certainly continue. Informational models focusing on the transfer of medicinal properties might provide us more hints about the nature and characterization of the HD phenomenon. Clinical research, assessment of the quality and efficacy of public and private health systems as well as education experiences are also expected. And why not also technological developments, patents and new products based on HD?
IJHDR is ready to publish and spread any high quality results associated with the HD phenomenon. We are aware that to perform studies in this field is not an easy task, as a stable background for it is still under construction. And certainly it will not be available in one yearâ€™s time!
On behalf of IJHDR Editorial Staff, I wish you much inspiration, persistence and pleasure in the study of the HD phenomenon!
