The year 2023 marks the beginning of the third year of the joint venture between the Spanish Society of Paediatric Clinical Immunology, Allergy, and Asthma (SEICAP) and Codon Publications. Hence, it is a good time to reflect upon how things have gone, and what must be the future direction of Allergologia et Immunopathologia.

Things are going well, thanks to the efforts of the editorial team devoted to the “cause” of AI. It is fair to distinguish two people in particular. First, Dr. Hemendra Singh, the soul of the transition. He continues to command editorial tasks, takes special care of the metrics of the Journal, and is the one who suggests changes, whispers pieces of advice, and helps to maintain the course of the AI ship. Second, Scott Bryant, the day-to-day person with whom I exchange several emails daily, because he deals with decisions on submissions. He is always ready to help with any unexpected task. Still, I cannot forget rest of the team. I do not know the machinery behind the scenes, but I know they are always present to ensure that AI’s engine runs smoothly. I perceive how it sounds, and it sounds great!

Things are going well as we continue receiving papers from all over the world at a time when new journals are appearing globally each hour. The competition is tough, but Allergologia et Immunopathologia is always ready to prevail and weather the storms. This has been possible because so many generous scientists have dedicated their time and energy to review and correct submissions, for which I, SEICAP, and the editorial team sincerely acknowledge their efforts.

However, despite many things going well, there is always a room for progress, because science cannot be a conformist. We need to maintain and improve the scientific level of Allergologia et Immunopathologia and, consequently, increase its metrics. This requires time, energy, imagination, and probably new and young people on the editorial board who can bring fresh ideas and strength to the Journal. Although the editorial team will be working on this in 2023, this is an open invitation to all young scientists working in the field of allergy and clinical immunology who are interested and want to join this venture. SEICAP remains to get involved in this process as a vital part of the joint venture mentioned above.

New blood, new ideas, new dreams… This is the only way to move ahead. Both editorial team and SEICAP cannot take things for granted. In today’s world, we must keep moving and changing. If we do not develop, we will diminish and, in the end, disappear. Our primary weapons to overcome this challenge are hard work, faith, and risk-taking. As the writer C. JoyBell C. has put:

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.

To the SEICAP steering group, its members, and Allergologia et Immunopathologia’s editorial team, let’s throw ourselves in the open, become exposed, and take steps forward to achieve what our Journal deserves in 2023!

Finally, once again, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the reviewers who offered their great expertise and valuable time to help select and evaluate all the papers submitted to Allergologia et Immunopathologia in 2022.

Best wishes,
