Dear LAJSBA readers, this editorial note has the intention to update you with the news from our journal. In this sense, we want to tell you that our editorial team has been renewed with the incorporation of two Associate Editors, José I. Cuitiño (CONICET, Argentina) and Giorgio Basilici (UNICAMP, Brazil). We want to express deeply thanks to RenataNetto and Fernando Gómez for the excellent work done during the last four years. We also express our gratitude to the Board of the Asociación Argentina de Sedimentología for trusting us for this important and committed task. The journal, since its foundation in 2005 (coming from the AAS Revista since 1994), has been progressively improving its quality and its visibility within the scientific community. LAJSBA is an entirely online free-access journal with a high level scientific quality and design which is recognized by the Latin American Earth Sciences community. In terms of bibliographic indexes, LAJSBA is included in the ranks of SCOPUS, Scimago, Latindex, DOAJ, GeoRef,andSciELO.

Some important news can be highlighted from the last two years. Firstly, we want to communicate a great improvement for our journal: the launch of the new LAJSBA website! This website (https://lajsba. represents a great advance for the journal and concentrate not only the submission and review systems, but also the repository of the complete collection of LAJSBA. This achievement was possible thanks to the support of the members of the Asociación Argentina de Sedimentología and we are proud to share it with the entire Latin American geoscientist community and from every corner of the world where LAJSBA has a reader.

The second essential notice is that, since the volume 26.2 (December 2019) the journal is on regular time! This was possible through the efforts of authors, reviewers and editors, which hardly worked during the last four years. One benefit of the present online publication system is the possibility to manage several volumes in progress in our online platform; this means that after the paper acceptance, it will be automatically published as part of future volumes, reducing considerably the time for online publication.

Finally, a great news for our sedimentological community is related to the latest modification from Scimago Journal Ranking, which ranked the journal in the 2nd Quartile in all the categories where it is included (Geology, Paleontology, and Stratigraphy). This was the result of the high visibility gain for LAJSBA which could be interpreted from the statistics in the Scimago web page, where our journal reached in 2021 the record of cites in the last 15 years!

We are convinced that maintaining the path marked by previous editorial teams, together with the recent improvements of bibliographic indexes and an active international diffusion, LAJSBA will increasingly become an attractive journal for the communication of scientific advances of the Sedimentology and Basin Analysis scientific community. To conclude, we want to emphasize that the future of LAJSBA depends upon the support of the Latin American sedimentological community, including readers, authors, reviewers, and editors, not just to maintain its importance in our region, but to cross our borders. We repeat once again the message to our readers; we are looking forward to receiving your contributions!
