EDITORIAL

 

 

When the Editors of the Anais decided the journal should have its own site (www.anaisdedermatologia.org.br), separated from the site of the Sociedade Brasileira de Dermatologia, their main objective was to provide an efficient and agile tool with unrestricted access to its scientific content. As an additional benefit, making the full text of articles available in Portuguese and English would definitely increase the potential number of visits to the site.

We are pleased to share with our readers the figures provided by Locaweb, which is in charge of the statistics of the site. In the third trimester of 2005, there were 9031 visits (daily average of 98 visits), with a mean duration of 11 minutes and 35 seconds. Out of this total, 29.04% of the visits were from abroad. The fourth trimester is still under analysis but shows an increase by 58% in number of visits, totaling up 14257; in that, 24.7% are from abroad.

These results increasingly and consistently demonstrate that the objectives put forward have been broadly achieved. The significant participation of foreign visitors stands out and confirms the dissemination of scientific information through our journal. The whole collection of the Anais, since its first issue in 1925, will be soon available in a PDF format; hence, retrieval of scientific material will be broaden, and its download performed in a compact format that makes printing easier.

The last issue of this number has a supplement with the full text of the best 22 papers presented at the 60th Congress of the Sociedade Brasileira de Dermatologia, held in Brasilia. We hope this unprecedented effort will become permanent for showing the close that guides the joint work carried out by the Board of SBD, the Organizing Committee of the Congress and the Editors.

Happy 2006 to all!q
