In this year, the Chimica Techno Acta journal (CTA) celebrates its 10th anniversary. A tenth of a century is a long time, during which about 350 papers have been published. In the beginning, the journal has been edited in two formats (electronic and print) and in two languages (Russian and English), but then considerable efforts have been made to ensure the rapid consideration of manuscripts while maintaining high peer-review standards at the same time. CTA has become an exclusively English-language and online journal. As a result, authors currently receive a first decision on their manuscripts within 17 days of submission, while the total time from submission to publication of a final version does not exceed 50 days. Along with providing good conditions for our authors, the journal seeks all possible ways to improve the quality of its content by considering well-designed manuscripts for their publication. Therefore, the rejection rate is increased from 10–20% in 2014–2015 to almost 50% in 2022.

Another point consists in the support of the published items by visual facilities that have online journals. To avoid boredom, we changed the layout from grayscale to color and then to different colors for each year. The current (10th) volume is published in an orange-based design, symbolizing sunrise, warm sand, and juicy peach. We believe that visual content has a strong focus on the readers' attention. Even though the color perception may not impress someone, we will definitely change the coloristics in next year.

The CTA Editorial Board is constantly updated with new scientists to ensure a more accurate review of incoming manuscripts. Within the current editorial, we are pleased to welcome a new editor, Dr. Pavel Padnya from Kazan Federal University (Russia). A short interview with him can be found below.
