We are pleased to announce that Richard L. Moss has agreed to serve as an Associate Editor of the Journal. Rick is Professor of Physiology in the School of Medicine of the University of Wisconsin, where he is also Director of the Cardiovascular Research Center and Associate Dean for Basic Research, Biotechnology and Graduate Studies. Rick’s laboratory investigates contractile process in heart and skeletal muscles and their alterations in disease, with a special focus on myosin. Rick brings to the Journal a deep knowledge of muscle physiology.
We also report that Kenneth Holmes will be stepping down as an Associate Editor at the end of his current term in June (though continuing on the Editorial Advisory Board). Ken has been an outstanding editor whose dedicated service has contributed greatly to the Journal. His ever thoughtful comments and wry wit will be missed in our weekly meetings.
We urge the Journal’s readership to visit the new JGP website and play with our widgets. Check out the “Most Read/Most Cited” feature to see which articles are hot. Peruse the newest articles, now identified by thumbnails. Click on the “Commentaries and Perspectives” tab to find up-to-date critical analyses of current topics of broad interest to the general physiologist. When you download an article, choose whether you want to simultaneously download any Supplemental Material, check the article’s usage statistics, and set up an “alert” for any citations. For an overview of these and other changes, enjoy the description “New style, same substance” (May 2010; JGP 135:393) by Mike Rossner, Executive Director of The Rockefeller University Press. Stay tuned for further changes.
