This issue of Access to Justice in Eastern Europe consists of the collection of research articles focused on the evolution of justice in independent Ukraine. This year, we celebrate an outstanding event – 30 years ago, Ukraine became an independent state, and now, we have a great occasion to summarise some of our challenges and achievements.
Let me share some of our latest accomplishments. AJEE was finally fully indexed in Scopus, Elsevier, and, on this occasion, I want to thank all our team – my excellent managing editors, respectful Editorial Board members, attentive reviewers and language editors, and authors, who helped us to share the results of research in the area of judiciary and civil justice, as well as criminal procedure among the wide audience of professional scholars and practitioners.
I sincerely hope that legal science will blossom and bring the fruit of peace and strong institutions, the rule of law, and equal access to justice to our world.
