The seminar began with a warm welcome speech by Min Fan, general manager of Beijing OAE Publishing Inc. Then, Mrs. Gao, on behalf of the JSSS editorial office, presented the current development of JSSS and plans for its future. Moreover, Editorial Board members provided many constructive suggestions for JSSS, discussing the topics of planned papers for the first issue, how to control the quality of papers, suggestions on the average processing time of manuscripts, encouraging policies for journal participants such as authors and reviewers, and how to communicate with young and middle-aged scholars of strong academic potential, among others. At last, the Editorial Board stated that promoting and growing together with JSSS is an honorable, unremitting, and challenging task. Although there is great pressure, it also brings motivation.
Looking ahead, with the continuous support of the Editorial Board, we hold a firm belief that JSSS will emerge as a high-quality, influential international journal. Its sustained development will assist researchers in related fields to keep abreast of research topics, subject information, and related industry trends.
