Dear Authors and Reviewers,
Econometrics is constantly at the forefront of scientific journals in Poland. On December 23rd 2015, there appeared a Communication from the Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education regarding the list of scientific journals. Econometrics obtained 14 points. Apart from that, as a result of the evaluation of scientific journals conducted by Index Copernicus International, Econometrics achieves higher score from year to year. The grade earned for 2014 was 75.77 points (a normalized value of 7.3 pts.). We are constantly making efforts to obtain an even higher evaluation in the years to come. Our purpose is to introduce Econometrics to the A list. For this reason, from next year most of the articles will be published in English.
