Letter from the Editor-In-Chief
It is a pleasure to present the first issue of the seventh volume of the Spanish Journal of Soil Science. It contains articles by several international authors that besides plant nutrition and trace elements deal with less common issues as invertebrate study and the value of soil in preserving archaeological records.
The objective of the editorial team for this year is to improve the quality of the journal and its reflection in the journal impact indices. At present, the SJSS has a Scopus CiteScore of 65% (3rd Q). During 2016, accession numbers increased 17% compared with 2015, and we have obtained the FECYT seal of editorial quality.
On behalf of the editorial team, we thank the authors for sending the manuscripts, the guest editors for their rigor in the selection and review of manuscripts, the referees for the quality of their reviews, and the team Universia for its professionalism.
