Editors Notes/Notes du rédacteur

Editor's Notes Gerald Oetelaar

As I indicated at the annual general meeting, this is my last issue as editor and perhaps fittingly, I end my tenure with a thematic issue, an initiative I instituted to increase the number of submissions. In fact, this is the second thematic issue and I encourage the readership to communicate their opinions on the merits of this initiative to the new editor, Gary Coupland. On the plus side, there is, as I pass the mantle, one article ready for publication and several more in various stages of the review process. As such, the second thematic issue provided more breathing room for the incoming editor than when either George or I took over the responsibilities. However, the merit of this initiative depends on the reactions of the readers and your assessments of the thematic issues.
