JEE.ro, volume 8, no.2, 2008 is here with twenty papers. Seven of them come from the International Conference LDIA 2007 and refer to linear electric motors; the rest have been selected by review from the paper proposals uploaded directly on our site. Given the fact that we are receiving more and more papers per month, we decided starting with this issue to increase the number of published papers provided their quality is there. We also need more prompt but professional reviews and I kindly ask our reviewers to be more responsive. The potential authors are urged to send papers with substantial digital simulations and experimental results besides a strong theoretical contribution. Only by exception, papers without experiments will be accepted to the Journal. Please cite papers from JEE.ro whenever appropriate as a new journal needs visibility in its effort to join ISI. Thanks again authors and reviewers for your contribution to JEE.ro success. Sincerely, Professor Ion Boldea Editor of JEE.ro
