Title:  Stricter and shorter

Abstract:  The last September issue was dedicated to Orthodontics in childhood. In order to do so, publishing of other articles had to be postponed. This supplement is a means to avoid a prolonged waiting time for four of those articles. We can choose only the shortest articles, according to what I underscored in my editorial in the past June issue. To reinforce my preference for short articles, I am pleased to publish some sentences of a letter received by Prof. Martin Curzon, our first Editor in chief and currently member of the EAPD editorial board: "I have just received the latest issue of the EJPD and read your editorial with interest. This overload with papers is common and all journals are having the same problem. I think the only way we can deal with it is to be much much more strict in which papers we accept. I go into Pubmed and see how many papers there are already on the subject. In most cases there are already many and the new paper adds nothing new. Then I am very strict on how the paper has been written and presented. Thus our rejection rate is now heading 60%." We will try to do our best.
