Please note that the NJE offices will be closed from 20 December until early January 2019. 

The current editor, Barbara Curtis, and section editor Thomas Christiansen, will both be stepping down as of the end of this year.  Dr John Irish will take over as editor from January 2019.  Dr Irish is an entomologist with a wide range of interests, not just insects.  As webmaster for the Biodiversity website, he keeps abreast of changes in all fields of biology.  He has extensive experience in publishing in a wide variety of journals, as well as popular articles.

Papers submitted this year that have gone back to their authors for revision will be processed further next year.  If they are accepted for publication before the end of February they will still be published in volume 2 (2018). 

The editor and Editorial Committee would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the journal this year, whether as authors or reviewers.  Without your support we would not have a journal. 

We wish you all a safe, happy, healthy festive season, and look forward to yet more interesting submissions next year.
