Several ‘hairy’ goals were launched at an editorial meeting in Copenhagen, such as becoming a strictly peer-reviewed journal; focus on original and review papers; decision to cover aspects of multidisciplinary care throughout the chain of survival; focus on clinical research along the themes of trauma, resuscitation and emergency medicine; and, becoming the lead Scandinavian journal in its category... I firmly believe the initial strong support by several thought leaders in Scandinavia, Europe and North America was crucial – their submission of timely topics from expert groups and world-leading centres in an amalgam of evidence- and education-based material provided for several strong review articles across several disciplines, several of which continue to be accessed, downloaded and heavily cited in the Journal even today... The name change (from Akuttjournalen) and transition was not easy, and among the several options, we landed on a name that is not easily spoken in one breath: the Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine is one mouthful for sure! While lacking proof of the claim, I also hold the belief that it has inspired and driven more and better research in trauma, resuscitation and emergency medicine in Scandinavia... Still, I hope a Scandinavian focus will remain visible, although the world is now the playground for us all... Last but not least, I sincerely need to thank the most important contributors to the success of the Journal... Second, to the number of authors who have contributed original and review papers of very high quality at a time when the Journal was trying to get a foot in the door to the academic community of people interested in trauma, resuscitation and emergency medicine... For sure, this has largely contributed to the growth and development of the journal... Finally, my sincere gratitude and expressed thanks goes to those who peruse the Journal material, be it as readers of the content, presenters at conferences and as citations in further publications... The steady and increasing use of SJTREM material in other media and in meetings testifies to its having a role and being a vehicle for transmission of knowledge across Europe and beyond... Lastly, the ultimate goal of the Journal and its content is to advance the medical care for the benefit of critically ill patients around the world... So, it is only appropriate that I shall say not only ‘takk for meg’ but also include an ‘adieu’, forward a sincere wish of ‘godspeed’, and, definitely state an “auf wiedersehn” to the global supporters of the Journal.

Mentions: In a time of transition from what was then a local/national magazine under the name “Akuttjournalen” based on opinion pieces, reports and organizational material of interest primarily to the national prehospital community in Norway, the desire to become a more international based scientific and academic journal based in Scandinavia was launched. The journal idea was among others an offspring of many successful international conferences, including the Traumacare2002 conference [2] that coined the chain of survival terminology (Fig. 1), followed by other conferences such as Scandinavian Updates in 2005 [3] and 2009 [4] and Resuscitation 2006 (Fig. 2) to mention but a few.Fig. 1
