I am pleased to report that the Journal continues to hold a leading position in the field of Geochemistry and Geophysics (18th out of 84 journals according to the most recent 2016 citation reports). Our 2016 Impact Factor (IF) was 3.280. This represents a reduction since 2015, but we are predicting a significant increase in the 2017 IF. Manuscript submissions remain buoyant, with a pleasing distribution of Authors from all over the world. Peer review is the cornerstone of successful journal publishing. We acknowledge and appreciate the tremendous hard work and professionalism of our peer reviewers. In 2018, we will launch a system for recognizing excellence in peer review. In July 2018 Jim Beard will be standing down from the main Editorial Board after many years of distinguished service for the Journal. He will become a member of the Advisory Board. During 2016, we launched a new section to the Journal - termed “Perspectives in Petrology”. Despite a slow start, submissions are increasing and Perspectives is now featuring articles on some of the latest developments in petrology, authored by internationally recognised experts. Marian Holness of the University of Cambridge (UK) is the Editorial lead for Perspectives. As always at this time of year, I extend my warmest thanks to the members of the Editorial and Advisory Boards for their dedicated contributions to the continuing success of the Journal. Also to the “back office” team: Editorial Manager, Alastair Lumsden; Copy Editor, Joyce Bell; Production Editor, Sarah Condon, and Publisher, Adam Leary. © The Author(s) 2018.
