Ignacio González, Editor

The consolidation and international positioning of the Journal of the Mexican Chemical Society represents an important challenge in this globalized world. This is especially relevant with open access scientific journals arising from different parts of the planet, the increasing number of articles submitted for publication to our journal and the limited financial supports. These tasks demand continuous and different editorial adjustments that are being undertaken with the collaboration and enthusiastic support of the editorial board members. The increase in our impact index (JCR, july 2015) from 0.55 (2013) to 0.619 (2015) is a result of intense collaborative work and motivation to enhance the international positioning of the Journal of the Mexican Chemical Society .

Unfortunately, different problems experienced with the sponsor CONACYT (the National Council for Science and Technology) have delayed the incorporation of the journal into the automated electronic platform (Open Journal System) for its administration and production. We are working with the Editorial Board to achieve this task before the year's end.

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the important and generous labor of associate editors and referees collaborating with the journal. We will continue our efforts to provide the best service to the chemical community.

Finally, on behalf of the Editorial Board, I renew the invitation to our colleagues from Mexico and abroad to consider the Journal of the Mexican Chemical Society as the preferred choice for publishing the results of your research.
