A message from Our Editor in Chief; Professor Rinaldo Bellomo
CCR has gone “electronic”
The movement from paper-based to electronic journals has been gathering pace now for more than a decade. The driving forces are well-understood. They include environmental concerns with paper consumption; the cost of production associated with paper-based journals; the increasing use of electronic communication tools; the consumers’ desire to be able to read journal articles from laptops, iPads or mobile phones wherever an individual may be; the increased ability to transmit such articles or segments thereof to colleagues by electronic means, and, finally, the opportunity to transmit article-related information using modern social media (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook among others). The down-sides are limited, making the transition, sooner or later, necessary.
The CCR team of the College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand has worked hard and persistently to make this transition possible and to be ready to launch it with the first CCR issue of 2020. Thanks to their outstanding effort, we greet this next decade with the arrival of eCCR, the electronic version of CCR. This transformation represents a first step toward making CCR more modern.
We hope that once eCCR becomes established, it will come with additional components that would make it more interactive, more “social platform ready” and better able to see its science divulged more rapidly and to more people. For the Editor-in-Chief, however, the tasks remain the same: to deliver best quality science to the readers; to be responsive and relevant to its key readership (the ANZ ICU community); to expand the reach of its reputation worldwide, and to stimulate the production of more world class investigations.
