Dear readers,




The goal of each publishingoffice is to increase the visibility of the magazine and its access to as many readers and authorsas possible. The author of these lines makes huge efforts in posting daily articles on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and related social media to achieve that goal. In the last year,the magazine has increased its metrics.For example, Google Scholar has assigned values ​​h5 index: 3; h5-median to the magazine: 4. on the other side, for the first time we are indexed in the seminal SCImago database that is directly related to the database Scopus. The bibliometric information for 2013 is the following: SNIP: 0.119; SJR: 0.12; IPP: 0.07. In the last month, the magazine is resubmitted for re-evaluation in Medilne and by February 2015 we expect the results and for first time, it is submitted for indexation in PubMed Central. However, despite these successes, the publishing office cannot provide good quality and dedicated web-administrator who will quite professionally keep the online version of the magazine that you can find at the following link: .mk. We sincerely hope that the publishing council will find incentives and finances to ensure smooth work of this very important part of the magazine. 

In your hands is the number 3-4 for 2014. The authors of Slovenia in the first rubric of Special Education and professional issues write about the inclusive education for blind and low vision students in Slovenia. The second paper of this rubric gives an overview of the special education programs in the state of Jordan where the current practices, the challenges they face and the future perspectives are described. The section ends with a display of recidivism after a treatment in a disciplinary center for juveniles in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The effect of the training on emotional intelligence of behavior problems of boys with externalized behavioral disorders in primary schools is the title of the first paper in the rubric Psychological and pedagogical review. The rubric continues with the paper of the author Monica Reichenberg which addresses the structured talks on a text and its importance for student’s reading comprehension in special schools. The authors Metka Novak and Majda Koncar show a practical paper titled: The role of support groups in the cooperation between parents of children with intellectual disabilities and professional staff. The paper Methodology of teaching and examination of persons with visual impairment: a system in India and Japan is included in the rubric Experiences and news in the world

In the rubric News and Information the readers will be informed about the celebration of April 2nd, the International Day of Persons with Autism. Irena Novacheska writes about the International Congress on Education and Rehabilitation Faculty in Zagreb, held from 11 to 13 April this year. The last news from this edition is the international symposium Newest medical views on trisomy 21 and autism held in May in Croatia. Then, there is an abstract from a doctoral thesis defended by our colleague Aleksandra Karovska Ristovska titled: Comparative analysis of the structure of the Macedonian and American Sign Language.
As in all previous editions, you will read theregular rubrics: Bibliography, List of reviewers and Author Index.
The publication of scientific papers in international journals by the M.A and PhD students should not be just an obligation and duty of every young scientist, but it should be a noble task towards self-recognition and increased visibility of the young colleagues in the world of science. Who cannot understand this, has probably wandered in the scientific waters.



Yours sincerely,
Prof. Dr. Vladimir Trajkovski
