Dear readers, authors, reviewers and contributors.
In the last years, our journal Polímeros undertook a series of changes and adaptations to new events. With the lack of financial support, Polímeros discontinued the printed version but also altered the web submission platform and introduced new policies to attract authors. The latter actions placed our journal on a new level in relation to the international scientific community. Because of this effort, we have received submissions of high-level manuscripts from Brazilian authors and from different countries; a competent group of referees reviewed these manuscripts. This effort resulted in the recent increase in our impact factor (see below). We expect to maintain this trend in the coming years with the continuous contribution of all the polymer science and technology community.

President of the Editorial Council of Polímeros
