No doubt, many readers will know that, after a thorough scrutiny of journal quality and policy, the Department of National Education as agreed that articles published in SACJ should be treated as articles in ISI accredited journals. That means, of course, that South African tertiary institutions whose members publish in SACJ will receive the same state subsidy that is used for publication in ISI accredited journals. Initial investigations into the process for obtaining ISI accreditation suggest that it is a rather long and bureaucratic one. It relies, inter alia, on metrics such as the number of references in existing ISI accredited journals to articles in the applying journal, on the journal's review policy, its editorial board, etc. Notwithstanding these hurdles, SACJ will continue to strive for quality that conforms to other ISI accredited journals, even though such accreditation should not be regarded as imminent.
