Letter from the Editor
For nearly a decade, I have had the distinct privilege and pleasure of serving as the editor for the journal. During this time, with the support of a terrific team, the journal has matured to become the leading venue of English-language philosophical research in the area. Our authors benefit from expert critical feedback, and readers have enjoyed more content and an expanded perspective on international research. The journal’s readership continues to grow as we have enhanced electronic access and indexing. Serving as editor has given me terrific opportunities to meet new people, learn about important scholarship, and contribute to shaping the field—these are opportunities that should be shared with others. Thus, I have asked the Editorial Board to commence a search for a new Executive Editor to come aboard sometime before the end of the calendar year.
I am grateful that Board member Professor David Owen has agreed to chair the selection committee, which is now seeking nominations and letters of interest. Persons who are potentially interested in applying should contact Professor Owen (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to August 1.
I consider myself fortunate to have enjoyed the support of the publisher, editorial team, board, and the journal’s readership for so long. It is difficult to leave this work behind, but my own research initiatives need my full attention. I am confident in the board’s ability to recruit and select an excellent new editor, and both the publisher and I are fully committed to supporting a smooth transition. You can contribute to the future success of the journal by directing high-quality research our way and continuing to engage with the scholarship you find among our pages.
