As Editor, it is a joy to share with you the great news that the journal Investigación y Educación en Enfermería was accepted for indexation in PubMed Central (PMC), which is the world’s largest repository of knowledge on health sciences. PubMed Central has close to seven million articles in full text and in Open Access that can be recovered through the PubMed search engine.

Currently, PMC archives over 3018 journals accepted after demanding scientific and technical evaluations. Being included in this repository is a recognition distinction of the quality of our publication with the global academic community, with 22 nursing journals sharing this honor globally and only two of these are Latin American.

The journal Investigación y Educación en Enfermería has also been part of MEDLINE since 2014, a fact that marked a milestone on the excellence of our journal. We are convinced that with the new PMC indexation, visibility will increase further of the articles published in our journal, thus, improving the dissemination of the knowledge produced in nursing research.

Lastly, I wish to thank the authors, reviewers, members of the editorial committee, and, most specially, I thank our readers for their loyalty throughout these years. We count on your perseverance and enthusiasm to make this the best medium.
