Letter from the Editor
The past season has been exceptionally busy for the Journal, and I am pleased to announce several major changes on the horizon. Most significant is the partnership we have entered with the North American Nietzsche Society (NANS) to become the venue for select papers from their annual meetings. This new arrangement will result in an expansion of JNS in 2013 to three issues annually. The next issue, volume 43, issue 1, will be the first to feature NANS papers. I am especially grateful to Richard Schacht, Executive Director of NANS, Patrick Alexander, Editor in Chief at Penn State University Press, the JNS editorial board, and the program committee of NANS for their patience, guidance, and good will as we worked out the details of this exciting new venture.
With this new development, we happily welcome a new associate editor, Professor Jessica Berry, who joins the editorial team with primary responsibilities for the NANS issue. Professor Berry is no stranger to the Journal as she was the guest editor for issue 42.
During this final week of summer, we also launched our new manuscript submission and tracking system on Editorial Manager, which we hope will allow us to make even more improvements in our response time to authors of submissions and will certainly make it easier for authors to monitor the progress of their work as it makes its way through our editorial processes. We are grateful to PSUP for making this available to us.
Finally, beginning with the next issue, JNS will move to using a new numbering system for its issues. There will be annual volume numbers with individual issue numbers. So, look for JNS 43:1 to arrive in your mailbox in the spring. It will be a large issue with articles that I am sure will spark interesting discussions.
We welcome your letters, suggestions, and submissions, and we hope you will join us in celebrating these new developments.
