The editorial staff has made several
changes to the Journal, some of which are obvious, and others not so
readily apparent. With this issue we feature a new cover design, including a
more compact style for the table of contents, and some reformatting of the
inside-cover information pages. The title, author information, and abstract of
each article (and similar areas in the other journal items) have also been
redesigned. Also with this issue, we have changed from high-gloss paper to a
flat finish paper.
The most subtle design change made its
appearance in volume 30, number 1 of the Journal, where we began using a
new text format (a larger type size, increased leading between lines, and wider
tracking between letters).
All of these changes are primarily meant to improve
readability, but they are also meant to enhance the journalís overall
appearance and appeal. We hope you agree!
