— I have been an associate editor with this journal since 2008, says Musial. -During this time this wonderful, competent, and engaged group of editors has lead the journal through the transformation from being a local, German speaking journal to a well-established international journal. I am proud over this successful transition, which has given the journal wide visibility within the field leading to a constantly rising impact factor over the last years. In the years to come, I will, together with my excellent associate editors, continue this successful process and lead the journal to even more visibility and accessibility.
