At the end of 2016 Prof Liesel Ebersöhn stepped down as executive editor of the South African Journal of Education (SAJE). Based on her vision and dedication to quality research in Education, SAJE reached numerous milestones over the last five years. The impact factor increased to 0.56, resulting in SAJE being regarded as the leading journal in education in Africa. Based on the standing of the journal, a steady increase in international submissions has been seen. Furthermore, SAJE is accredited by the Web of Science and listed in the Department of Higher Education and Training list of approved journals. Our congratulations and gratitude goes to Prof Ebersöhn for her dedication and hard work to take the journal to greater heights during the time of her executive editorship.
