In this issue, JOSI made major improvements. We use new article template, which is based on Elsevier's ScienceDirect and EmeraldInsight's article templates. We made it from scratch following best practices used by those publishers. JOSI assigned DOIs to our recent and back issue articles. A concise guidance on how to use Mendeley as a reference manager is provided for authors to read and follow.
We also changed our business process into a full online publishing process. Users register, submit and amend their articles in JOSI's online workflow. Reviewers made their reviews online, which we previously did in email communications. Previously published articles can be found in Universitas Andalas' repository and main library's server. We also submit our published articles to LIPI (Lembaga Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia) or the Indonesian Institute of Sciences.
JOSI changed its printed cover into the one we have now for a better and fresher look and feel.

In short, we made changes to JOSI for a better management and comforting our audiences without sacrificing JOSI' quality. Thank you for reading and supporting JOSI, we do appreciate that. It encourages us to be better.
