From the New Editor


With this issue I fully assume responsibility as the editor of Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS). It is certainly a privilege and a great honor to "guide" this journal for the next three years. During my tenure I pledge that papers continue to meet the rigorous standards that our readership expects. I will also try very hard to have manuscripts published as quickly as possible.

I would like to thank outgoing editor, Elizabeth Nelson, whose support guaranteed a smooth transition from her editorship to mine. I have also appreciated the help of Aileen Buckley, Ilse Genovese, and Scott Freundschuh, who have provided wealth of advice and guidance (and, hopefully, will continue to do so).

Several important changes have occurred during the past few months. First, the CaGIS archive project was completed, which means that CaGIS members can now access all back issues of the CaGIS journal online at http://www.ingentaconnect.com, at no additional cost. Second, CaGIS was officially submitted for inclusion in the Social Sciences Citation Index and for coverage in Web for Science. The evaluation of the journal is currently in process. Inclusion in SSCI and Web for Science will certainly increase the attractiveness of the journal and its visibility among potential authors and readers. Third, Jeong Chang "JC" Seong became the new associate editor, replacing Bob McMaster in this position. Welcome JC on the team! I would like to thank Bob for his dedication to the journal over almost two decades; he served as the CaGIS editor from April 1991--July 1996, and was instrumental in CaGIS becoming one of ICA's three official journals.

The next CaGIS issue (July 2009) will be a special issue devoted to Geospatial Visual Analytics, and it will be guest-edited by Gennady Adrienko. Another special issue on Mapping Hazards and Disasters is planned for January 2010. Manuscripts for this issue are being accepted until May 24, 2009. Please contact guest editor Jacqueline Mills by email for further information (jacqueline.mills@usc.edu). Please contact me (mleitne@lsu.edu) if you are interested in guest editing a future CaGIS special issue. …
