This issue completes the first volume of the Journal produced through the efforts of the new editorial staff in Atlanta. Start-up has not been without problems. As a result, issues have been late, but we hope that from the next issue forward delivery will be back on schedule. I would like to take this opportunity to provide the membership of the Society with a status report on the Journal.

Since last fall, when we began assuming our responsibilities, we have received, accessioned, initiated and in many cases completed the review process for approximately 350 manuscripts, 182 of these during the first five months of 1991. Initial peer reviews are indicating that almost 60% of the articles received are acceptable for publication if modified to meet changes suggested by referees. Approximately 50% of the papers received are eventually revised and returned for inclusion in the Journal.
