This is my last issue of JSIT as an editor. I set up the journal in 1997, and, for 10 years, I published it through Edith Cowan University. For the past 10 years, it has been published by Emerald. In addition, 20 years is a long time to be an editor, and I have had great satisfaction seeing the journal go from strength to strength as an international journal.
I want to thank the wonderful editorial review board for all the work they have done for the journal over the years. When JSIT started back in 1997, I asked academics I respected to get involved, and it is pleasing to see how their careers have developed. The people at Emerald have been great to work with, and I want to thank them for their support over the past 10 years.
JSIT has published many leading edge papers. There have been many Special Issues that have added to its reputation. The growing downloads and citations are validation that JSIT has a place in the academic publishing world. The papers are truly international in origin.
It is a good time to hand over the Journal to the new editors. I am sure, with their guidance, that JSIT will continue to make progress.
