An excerpt from The Lion Tracker’s Guide to Life in which Renias, the lead guide, relies upon his steady eye to search the South African bush for the “first track”. From here, the journey begins which will lead to the “second track”, then “third” and so forth until eventually “the pride” is found. The author correlates this to any transformation in life in that we all must take the initial step or in this case find the “first track” which leads oneself to the “second track” or the next step in life with the ultimate goal of achieving your desired outcome. With this in mind, the Journal of Pediatric Urology fully recognizes that the landscape of scientific publication is rapidly changing with respect to the total amount of scientific knowledge produced and mechanisms(digital/print) by which to view this material. Furthermore, with the advent of social media, a third paradigm is available to not only promote but perhaps supplement and augment the scientific journal which to this point has been the bedrock of scientific knowledge. To this end, we may not know what the future lies but do realize we need a solid team to help forecast and implement a thoughtful plan to address this changing landscape. To answer this charge, Pedro-Jose (PJ) Lopez has put together a team of experts in the field committed to developing a vision and strategy for the JPU to help navigate the everchanging future of scientific communication. We are thankful for his willingness to lead this group and look forward to their assessment and recommendations.
