This year Letters in Organic Chemistry (LOC) celebrates its 10th anniversary. During this decade, the journal has become a
well-known place to publish interesting organic chemistry papers through either letters or minireviews, as well as guest edited
issues in all fields of organic chemistry. Our aim for the next future would be to increase the scientific level of LOC (the current
impact factor is still below one) trying to get good papers especially from European, American and Japanese authors: this
would be the way to make the journal international. For this purpose, the Co-Editors-in-Chief, the Associate Editor, the
Regional Editors and the panel of Editorial Advisory Board Members should play a pivotal role.
Finally, I would like to thank all members of the LOC team for their continuous and generous help and support.
