     In recent years, this issue is the largest one we have published in this journal. This increase in the number of articles may be due to the fact that this journal has become more visible worldwide. It is also due to the increase in the number of participants who attend our university’s research activities, such as workshops, seminars, and conferences. It may also be due to the increased collaboration between the faculty and their students, and between our university and other surrounding universities. Whatever is the major reason for this significant increase, we are grateful to all the contributors of this issue.

     In this issue, articles are presented in all the three foci of the journal: business, education, and public health. We have some that maybe interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in the content. Everyone has something they can learn from this issue. I therefore encourage all the readers to take time to enjoy this large collection of knowledge from all different parts of the world.

     The contribution of this issue came from scholars from many different parts of the world; thus, giving it a global perspective on what is currently happening in the worldwide scholarly community. This international contribution truly proves the internationalization of this journal.

     As we enter 2018, I encourage you, the reader, to consider submitting a manuscript for our next issues. You can write an empirical study, a theoretical paper, a reaction paper to any of these articles, or a book review. The manuscript must be relevant to the fields of business, education, or public health. On behalf of the editorial team, I wish you a prosperous 2018 filled with some great scholarly contribution to the knowledge base.
