Today March 29th 2013 we released the newest issue of Journal of Special Education and Rehabilitation Vol. 14, Issue 1-2, 2013 is realesed.
This year the Institute of Special Education and Rehabilitation celebrates its 20th anniversary. Twenty years thorny road in the direction of educating students for one of most humane sciences, and that is, undoubtedly, special education and rehabilitation. These are the years during which the Institute was strengthening its position on the map of Institutes at the Faculty of Philosophy and the University “Ss. Cyril and Methodius” in Skopje and to become one of the most influential institutes with a strong impact in the regional framework. On this occasion we are planning to celebrate this anniversary with an international conference that will be held in the Hotel Metropol in Ohrid from 17 to 19 October this year. The call for submission of the papers is still open and we sincerely invite you to take active part in this important conference. Such is the situation with first publisher of the magazine and while it progressively steps its way into the leading science, the second publisher, The association of Special Educators of the Republic of Macedonia sinks in its decadence, refusing for a second time to complete its material obligations undertaken by contract and thus calls into question his role as publisher. Meanwhile it begins with the publishing of professional journal “Special Education and Rehabilitation” for which our redaction sincerely congratulates them, but by doing that, it performs parallelism in publishing and closes the doors as second publisher in our magazine.
At this point I would like to thank for the cooperation of two members of the editorial office that in the last edition completed their working duties: Irena Itova and Hristina Mitreva. In this edition their positions were taken by Slavica Petrovic translator from English to Macedonian and vice versa, Alexandra Petkovska Anastasov Lecturer in English Language and Ana Petkovska technical secretary of the editorial board. I wish them all a successful, fruitful and long-time work in order to improve the quality of the magazine.
The fact that rejoices is that in this edition there are a number of international authors from the following countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iran, China, Korea, Nigeria, the United States and Macedonia.
What would the readers read in this edition? The special education and rehabilitation section consists of three papers relating: the stress of parents of children with developmental disabilities and their support, the influence of the work of special educators and rehabilitation therapist in regular schools on the relationship between students with developmental disabilities and the psychosocial influence of the hearing impairment on interpersonal relationships of youths with hearing impairment in Nigeria. In the second section you can read an interesting thesis: Development of fine motor and visual-motor integration in children of preschool age. In the psychological section readers will meet two papers for measuring the self-esteem in the deaf / hard of hearing students and a comparison of the self-efficacy and hope between students with learning disabilities and students without learning difficulties. In the world news the readers will learn about the inclusion of children with intellectual and multiple disabilities: an approach of rehabilitation based on the community in India.
In the news and information section there are useful information about Open Access week, about the project COST-ESSEA program, about the collaboration between the Rotary Club from Skopje and MSSA and an announcement of the international conference that will be held in October in Ohrid. In this edition there is also an abstract of a master’s thesis: Barriers faced by young people with disabilities in the Republic of Macedonia through everyday life. The edition ends with the regular columns: Bibliography, List of reviewers and authors Index.

Dear colleagues respected readers,
Today 14.09.2012 newest issue of JSER was released No. 3-4, Vol. 13, 2012.
What can the readers read in this publication? There are two writings in the first rubric which talk about the integration of pupils with and without special needs from fifth grade from Austrian author and writing on continual assessment of the way of education of children with damaged eyesight. In the medical rubric there are two writings dedicated to autism. The titles of these two writings are: Hyperlexia and dyslexsia in autism: hitting at moving target and Diagnose and therapy of motor disorders in autistic children. The rubric psychologically-pedagogical review is presented with the writing: Risk factors of violent behavior amongst elementary and high schools students. The section dedicated to the practice brings an investigation of the intervention implementation based on the videos from the treatment package with self molding. The goal here is reduction of the stereotypical behavior of spiting a young girl with autism. In the world’s magazine the readers will read a research on a case of Chinese student acute social isolation or hikikomoria in Canada.
In the rubric news and information contain information about four events that took place in the last few months in the Republic of Macedonia. The authors are writing for the celebration of 2nd April – The World’s day of Autism, The forth international student congress which took place in Zagreb-Croatia, The first forum on the importance of the impact factor that took place at the Faculty of Philosophy in Skopje and The international professional-scientific assembly for the conditions and the temptations in the inclusive education, which took place in Strumica, in May this year. Then, we can notice an abstract from a master’s writing under the title: Deviant behavior in adolescents with mild intellectual disability.

Today 26.03.2012 newest issue of JSER was released No. 1-2, Vol. 13, 2012.
This year the academic journal “Journal of Special Education and Rehabilitation” is celebrating its 15 year of existence among the home and world specialized journalism. It is not a long period, but long enough to be able to make some analysis. The publication began as an unpretentious local journal that analyzed the issues related to the practice of special education and rehabilitation and its allied sciences, for later to grow into well accredited international journal with 18 members in its Editorial Board, from which more than 60% are foreign experts and authors form around 20 European and World countries. In this occasion, I would like to thank the first Editor-in-Chief Prof. d-r Ljupcho Ajdinski, PhD, and his deputy editor, the speech therapist Velichko Andreevski, for their brave steps and thriving idea to incept this academic journal. Compliments also deserve the remaining members of the editorial office that in the past 15 years gave their effort in building this contemporary publication up to our readers’ standards. It is obvious that in the past four years the number of indexing and abstracting has increased and in the present it has reached up to 54 major world databases and esteemed libraries.
The road to achieving the factor of influencing is long, painful, and fulfilled with many challenges. However, our journal has to reach the “Mont Everest in the world of academic publishing”. With this issue 1-2 for 2012, the journal enters a phase of new evaluation done by the company Thomson Scientific, and our hope remains that in the next issue we will publish that strongly desired factor of influence. Hereby should be acknowledged that the rate of rejected articles has increased up to 40%, which directly increased the quality of the published ones. The authors have to realize that when two independent reviewers will write a negative review, then the editorial office is left with the only choice to respect this decision, fully aware that this will meet some dissatisfaction among the authors in question. As an illustration, I would like to remind that the SCI indexes less then 2% of the journals coming from the developing countries, and so far in Macedonia the editors of only two journals can enjoy such achievement. There is defeating data that only 10-15% of the articles are scientifically useful. Half of the articles never and by nobody are being cited, and half of the journals are standing untouched on the libraries’ bookshelves.
The readers of this issue can read interesting contents by authors from Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia. Various topics from diverse areas are offered: the role of the family in the early intervention; the visual perception in children with plexus brachialis impairment; the occurrence of stuttering among the children with Down syndrome; hearing and visual impairment as a risk factor for depression; the subjective observation of the wellbeing of parents of special needs children; the development of the Quality of Life approach among persons with disability; and is established an analysis of the errors among the children with stigmatisam in the Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian language.
In the news and information section are being distributed five intriguing contents of held seminars and conferences, with the last one announcing the upcoming scientific symposium under the title “Inclusive education-condition and challenges”. It will be held in Strumica, Macedonia, in the period between 17th and 19th of May, 2012. After follows an abstract from a defended Master’s Thesis and the issue concludes as usual: bibliography, list of reviewers and index of authors.
Dear readers, I strongly advise us all to purchise Macedonian academic journals, because in that way we prolong the lifespan of the academic journalism, while getting educated in certain domains of our area of practice.
