Abstract

The year 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of Journal of Soils and Sediments (JSS). Since the first issue of JSS in March 2001, the journal has developed into one of the largest (in terms of the number of papers published) and most respected (as indicated by its journal impact factor) journals in its subject area. Originally, the journal was published by Ecomed but since 2008 has been published by Springer, and now Springer-Nature. This development has greatly helped the journal by increasing its profile and enabling it to expand from four issues a year to 12 issues in recent years. Over the last 20 years, the number of manuscripts submitted to the journal and the number of papers published have steadily increased (Fig. 1). Thus, Volume 1 published 33 citable articles in 2001, which compares to about 370 citable articles published in Volume 19 in 2019.
