It should be clear to the readers of the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene that a number of changes have been instituted. The size of the Journal increases with this issue to 8 1/2″ × 11″ and the cover has been updated. The larger page size will enable us to reduce the number of pages required by manuscripts and thereby reduce the page charges to individual authors. Two additional features, Short Reports and Letters to the Editor, were introduced in 1994. We believe that these changes will enhance the Journal's ability to communicate important information. Readers will also have noted that the Journal is now accepting advertising. We hope that this effort will provide some additional, much needed income to support publication costs.

In general, the health of the Journal is quite good as we begin a new year. The number of papers published has increased for the fourth consecutive year, from 180 in 1991 to 229 in 1994, and we will be making every effort to increase this number in 1995.
