With the publication of the third issue, the international scientific journal "Palimpsest" boldly and confidently steps into the second year of its existence. The successful start with the two issues published in 2016 provides a boost and encouragement to all of us who are engaged in the publication of this journal to continue the efforts for its development and promotion. The mission or the purpose of establishing such an international scientific journal was to promote the scientific work at the Faculty of Philology in Stip and Goce Delchev University (Stip, Macedonia), and to open new doors for cooperation with other universities in our country and in the world, which is evident in the composition of the Editorial board with 30 editors (university professors) from 17 countries of the Balkans, Europe and beyond - worldwide. The confirmation of our openness for international cooperation as a faculty and as a university is the multilingual character of the journal which accepts and publishes papers in seven languages - Macedonian, English, Russian, Turkish, German, French and Italian language. All this demonstrates our serious intention to create an international scientific journal in the true meaning of these three words.
