FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
It has become a matter of urgency to get our articles online. In December 2009 we submitted our application to Medline. It can take about a year to get a decisive answer from them. We therefore decided to approach the Academy of Science of South Africa. They have their own online facility by the name of Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), which is an open access facility.
Their standards for publications are about the same as those of the South African Orthopaedics Journal (SAOJ). SciELO is linked to Google. This is an enormous step forward for our Journal and it gives us great pleasure to bring the good news to our readers.
