What can a local, scholarly journal, like SAJAA offer its authors and readers that high-impact international journals cannot? This is a very challenging and exciting question that many scholarly journals in South Africa face. In particular, there is enormous pressure from public higher education institutions to publish in international journals that carry a high-impact factor and which are Medline and ISI listed. Is it sufficient to be accredited with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and indexed in Scopus? DHET will pay the subsidy for peer-reviewed articles published in journals listed in ISI, Medline and with respect to the South African list of journals accredited by DHET (and ASSAf). Clearly we would like to aim higher, and with this edition we will be embarking on this journey.
