Thanks to Ellen Levin for her help in the design of the new SNO Web site. Without her insight, dedication, and work on the details, the site would not have the well-designed visual and functional appeal that will make it an excellent tool for the Society.
The Editorial Office has launched the Web site for submitting manuscripts and manuscript reviews online to Neuro-Oncology (www.editorialmanager.com/n-o). Society members and contributors are being notified by e-mail of the date for the general availability of the site.
