Abstract: Volume 70, number 1, is the first issue of Journal of Marriage and Family (JMF) produced by the editorial office at The University of North Carolina-Greensboro. Most of the credit for this issue, however, should be extended to my predecessor, Alexis Walker, who edited all of the articles published in this issue. Effective February 1, 2007, our office in North Carolina began processing new submissions to JMF; gradually we began receiving revised manuscripts, and by September 30, 2007, we were processing all revised manuscripts, whether they were invited by me or by outgoing Editor Walker. During this 8-month period, we processed 359 manuscripts. We relied heavily on 94 Editorial Board members and 306 occasional reviewers to facilitate our goal of providing timely, thoughtful, and constructive feedback to authors. The average time from manuscript submission to editorial decision during this period was between 7 and 8 weeks.
