Abstract: As you know, my editorial team and I are no longer accepting new submissions, but we will continue to put together issues and to serve as the masthead editorial team through the end of 2009 (Volume 16, Issue 4). We will continue to accept papers as they are recommended for publication by our reviewers until we have filled all of our issues, probably sometime early next summer, but possibly sooner. 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. We are continuing to rely on our editorial board, ad hoc reviewers, and new scholar reviewers to review revised and resubmitted papers that they have reviewed previously. In cases where an additional evaluation is needed, we are occasionally asking one of them to complete a review of a revised and resubmitted manuscript he or she has not previously reviewed. The editorial teams of Lorne Campbell, the new Editor of Personal Relationships (PR), and Paul Mongeau, Editor of Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, are drawing reviewers from overlapping pools, so reviewers should not be surprised if they are asked to do more than one review during a short period of time.
