Excerpt: The Journal of Chiropractic Education will now publish a regular issue in the month of March, containing original articles as well as abstracts from the ACC Annual Conference/Research Agenda Conference. As usual, we will continue to publish the Fall issue each year. Thus, the journal now has two full issues published each year, both in paper and online (free access). Why the change? Simply stated, a journal cannot exist on abstracts alone. In order for the journal to enhance its image and improve its standing, full papers must be published each issue. Thus, I have been able to move some of our manuscripts to press sooner than expected. Adding manuscripts to the Spring issue of the journal has not come at the expense of sacrificing quality.
