Dear Readers,

I am pleased to present this issue of the journal to you. It reflects our efforts to grow in both quality and quantity, attract knowledgeable researchers abroad, and provide a forum for discussion. In the new year, I look forward to our further expansion as we move from two issues per volume to three. You can expect to see more discussion of research developments throughout the world, an expanded book review section to include reviews of books written in languages other than English, and even more articles as the results of our partnerships. The additional issue will affect our publication schedule so that you can expect to see your next issue in March. In the meantime, I encourage you to visit the JNS Web site, where you'll find previews of upcoming issues and other features.
