This issue marks a continued transition for the Eating Disorders Review. Twenty-four years ago, Joel Yager began as Editor in Chief and has remained in that role, concluding his tenure with the last issue. Joel wisely guided the development of Eating Disorders Review and has made it an extremely valuable resource to the field.
As of this issue, I am truly honored to take over as Editor for EDR. I will strive to continue the outstanding work that Joel has done, and will strive with the new publisher, iaedp, to maintain the high standards of EDR. As I look ahead to this task, there are two critical factors that will help make it easier. First, Joel blazed a clear path for the Review, and leaves with EDR in robust health. Secondly, there is an outstanding Editorial Board that helps to shape EDR as well. The Board provides a wide variety of experience and expertise to support the continued development of EDR.
This transition comes at a time of accelerating growth of knowledge about eating disorders and their causes, outcome, and treatment. In the next few years, more and more information will become available each year to guide clinicians working with individuals who have eating disorders. Eating Disorders Review will remain an invaluable guide to navigating this changing knowledge base.
