For the first time also, the number of submissions has reached 400, and the acceptance rate has been around 6%. These achievements reflect the hard work and dedication of all the Associate Editors, Action Editors, Guest Editors, and reviewers leading to selecting the very best manuscripts for publication. I am most grateful for a fantastic team, and I hope this trend will continue in future years.
