Calls for Review Editors

Re: Editor Stepping Down

Dear All, 

Allow me to again thank Clare for her service on behalf of this intellectual community, and to let subscribers know that we do have two new volunteer editors who are in training and will be taking over the editorial work in the coming weeks. You may see a little pause in activity while that happens, but rest assured, we'll be back up and running in no time. 

Kind Regards, 

David Prior
