Abstract

Dear Authors and Colleagues, We are pleased to announce that as of February 2019, Acta Otorhinolaryngologica Italica has a new website and platform, created in order to streamline the online submission and publication of new manuscripts. The close collaboration and painstakingly meticulous dedication of the Editorial Board together with Pacini Editore and Archimede Informatica Società Cooperativa have enabled us to create a new system that overcomes the limitations of the previous system, and meets the need for a smooth and rapid way to publish new articles of current and upcoming scientific interest. Furthermore, thanks to the introduction of the Crossref system, reference linking will be much easier for our associates. The associated DOI link will improve the visibility and citation of the articles, thereby enhancing the scientific prestige and exposure of ACTA and those who write for it. Our compelling mission is, as ever, to promote scientific and clinical research in the field of otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery at an international level. It is our unwavering conviction that such an aim cannot be pursued without first and foremost empowering the means for scientific dissemination in keeping with the twenty-first century. Our heartfelt thanks go to the Board of Directors of the Italian Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Society, in particular to the president, Professor Claudio Vicini, whose supervision and unstinting support have been essential to the cause. We sincerely hope that this upgrade may represent a suitable reward for your commitment and contribution to Acta Otorhinolaryngologica Italica.
