Dear colleagues,

The administrative board of Northern Greece Surgical Society has decided, with the approval of the General Assembly, January 2011, to convert the official journal of the Society, SURGICAL CHRONICLES, to a fully electronic journal.

At the same time I was honored as the title of Chairman of the Editorial Board, a title held for several years by Emeritus Professor of Surgery Anastasios Aidonopoulos, during whose tenure the journal has gained international recognition and was registered in Embase/Excerpta Medica and Scopus.

All the members of the society, whose opinion I reflect, along with myself would like to cordially thank Prof. Aidonopoulos , not only for the success of the journal, but also for his overall contribution in the establishment and recognition of our Society as the official institution of the Surgeons of Northern Greece.

The fully electronic form of our journal has been introduced in order to assure faster access of the journal’s contents not only to the members of our society but also to surgeons around the world.

Thus, it has been decided to continue offering free access to the “full-text” of the already published articles. Additionally, it has been decided to consider for publication manuscripts written not only in Greek but also in English language.

The electronic nature of the journal allows uploading of high quality colored images along with videos. Finally, the transition to the e-form with consequent minimizing the publication cost, allows us to continue the policy of free of charge publication .

I cordially invite you to visit the website of our journal and submit your scientific work for publication.

We hope that our journal will become a common ground of exchange of knowledge and experience to surgeons from all around the world.

With friendly regards

Kostantinos Atmatzidis

Professor of Surgery of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
Editor in Chief of SURGICAL CHRONICLES
