Editor’s Annual Report
Department of Family Therapy
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy
To improve our production performance in 2008–2009 we worked with Wiley-Blackwell to incorporate the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy (JMFT) into their EarlyView program which now allows us to publish authors’ articles soon after their articles have been accepted. The first JMFT articles appeared in EarlyView just prior to their publication in a forthcoming issue this year and next year we will move forward to making the articles available online as soon as post-production is completed. This advancement will allow our authors to have articles published in a shorter amount of time and will provide our readers early online access to the newest articles. The addition of EarlyView is testament to our positive relationship with Wiley-Blackwell, our publisher. We continue to receive excellent support and guidance from the Wiley-Blackwell marketing and production team including Margaret Zusky, Associate Publisher; Laura A. Bannon, Assistant Editor; Benjamin Hogan, Production Editor; Jill Yablonski, Product Manager; Leigh Stroecker, Marketing Manager; and Sean Wagner, PR Specialist. As journal editor I am quite fortunate to have the collective knowledge and wisdom of my associate editors, Drs. Carmen Knudson-Martin, Fred Piercy, Mudita Rastogi, Thorana Nelson, and Mark B. White, as well as statistical editor, Colwick Wilson, who all help with the challenging task of reviewing manuscripts and rendering editorial decisions on the rich variety of articles received at the journal. The journal could also not operate as effectively as it does if it were not for the consistently efficient and professional support provided by Kimberly Cronin, our superb Editorial Assistant. Dr. Shelley Green continued in the role of Reviews Editor and worked tirelessly in coordinating the efforts of many reviewers in order to populate the pages of JMFT with outstanding reviews on important works in the field. Dr. Green and I also appreciate all of those who have written book reviews this year including: Lisa Palmer, Saliha Bava, Austin Moore, Anne Rambo, Doug Greenlee, Martha Marquez and Harriet Kiviat. The staff of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) continues to provide the support and assistance the journal needs to be the high quality publication it is. Through their strong leadership and vision we continue to further the mission of JMFT.
