Abstract: As you know, my editorial team and I stopped receiving new submissions last June when Lorne Campbell became the new Editor of Personal Relationships, but we have continued to process the manuscripts we had already received and to serve as the Masthead Editorial team. We are now almost finished with our work. The March issue of Personal Relationships (Volume 16, Number 1) has already been mailed to subscribers and the June issue (Number 2) is in press (though I have not as yet written the Preface). My editorial team and I will continue to accept revised and resubmitted papers as they are recommended for publication by our reviewers until we have filled our remaining two issues. I suspect we will reach this point sometime in July, so this makes it extremely important for any author who has received an invitation to revise and resubmit a paper to do so in a timely way. Similarly, any author who is not planning to accept our invitation to revise and resubmit his or her manuscript should let me know immediately so we can plan accordingly.
