This is a significant breakthrough in the course of journal development. The Editorial Office would like to express sincere gratitude to all Editorial Board members, Guest Editors, authors, reviewers, readers, and those contributing to VP.
The reviewer of Scopus commented that the journal is publishing around 40 items per annum with very high citation activity; there are no obvious contraindications to accession to Scopus at this point.
