"The Journal of Headache and Pain travels full steam ahead as it reaches its 17th year. Its inclusive policy has allowed well-founded new scientific groups to enter in the headache field and to fill the gap between the enormous quantity of patients and the number of scientists dedicated to headache research. The journal has achieved this year an Impact Factor of 3.497, ranking it second in the field of headache research. I want to particularly thank the Editorial Board who have contributed to this great achievement, and most of all the authors who trusted the journal for their publications or have cited the journal elsewhere. A special thanks goes to the affiliated Societies, European Headache Federation and Lifting The Burden." Paolo Martelletti, MD
