As the Clean Air Journal moves into its fifth decade of existence, several exciting changes have taken place. The journal was launched online with its own dedicated website www.cleanairjournal.org.za in December 2013. A new team of Co-Editors, namely Dr Gregor Feig, Dr Rebecca Garland and Dr Caradee Wright, were appointed in October of 2014. They took over from Dr Gerrit Kornelius who had been the Editor-in-Chief of the journal for 25 years. Seven reputable scientists, policy-makers and practitioners were invited to become members of the Editorial Advisory Board to guide the strategic direction of the journal and to ensure articles of the highest standard. All of these efforts, among several other important activities, are focussed on a key objective for the journal. That is, to obtain for the journal accreditation by the Department of Higher Education and Training and ensure its inclusion in major citation databases, with the end goal of acquiring an impact factor. This will then place the Clean Air Journal as an important reference for publications on air quality, air pollution, its impacts on the environment and the management thereof in Southern Africa. In fact, this has been the core mandate of the journal since its inception as the official journal of the National Association for Clean Air.
