We are pleased to announce that MEDICALEXPRESS has been approved for inclusion into SciELO, the Scientific Electronic Library Online ( This automatically determines that it also approved for inclusion in LILACS.

SciELO is a highly respected multinational Science database, represented in 14 Latin American, Caribbean, European and African countries, with over 1,000 periodicals listed. It is a free open access collection, with a highly sophisticated search engine and operated as a permanent collection.

In January, 2016, the entire collection of MEDICALEXPRESS, will become available in the SciELO site. This is probably the most important game changing fact in the eighteen-month life of this journal.

Together with an extremely favorable rate of citations to our 2014 issue (25 citations to 61 articles - 0.41 cites/article - and counting), this may just be enough to obtain inclusion into the Science Citation Index (Impact Factor). The Editorial Office will make a decision on submission in November.

This entire issue (MEDICALEXPRESS. 2015;2(5), October, is coming out ahead of schedule. All but one of the papers have been available ahead of print and the last one comes together with this editorial. All of the available articles have already been downloaded by interested parties.

The highlights of this issue are

Botelho et al demonstrated that transdermal testosterone enhances libido in peri- and postmenopausal women, with no undesirable side effects.

Moretti et al showed that interleukin-13 receptors are possible therapeutic targets to prevent neoplastic cell migration in astrocytomas.

Looking forward to your contribution to the journal. To the best of our knowledge, no Brazilian journal publishes as fast as we do.
