As the Editor-in-Chief of Khizanah al-Hikmah : Jurnal Ilmu Perpustakaan, Informasi, dan Kearsipan (Journal of Library, Information, and Archive Science), I would like to gratefully acknowledge for the great contributions of all editor members and reviewers, who were engaged till now. Their time-consuming services are greatly appreciated, and their expertise and the valuable criticism on the content and style of the submitted papers have contributed very much to maintain the high standard of Khizanah al-Hikmah. These all ensure that the aim of the journal is maintained to communicate significant scholarly works by presenting recent issues in the fields in ease readable form.

By the end of September 2018, we have received more than 30 manuscripts for the 2019 edition; this is more than ever before. It indicates that the number of high quality manuscripts will further increase in the next year. The impact factor of the journal (Google Scholar Citation Metric) was also increased (207 citations), and I predict it will continue to increase. The journal has also again become faster in peer review processes. Nevertheless, we will continue our efforts to further reduce the time required for handling the peer review of manuscripts for the next years.

The proudest for this year is where the journal has achieved Sinta 2; National journal accreditation from the Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education of Republic Indonesia.

Once again, thank you very much for all authors, editors, reviewers for your dedication, energy, time and, continuous efforts for Khizanah al-Hikmah : Jurnal Ilmu Perpustakaan, Informasi, dan Kearsipan.; I wish you all always in good health and iman.
