Editorial Dear readers, The unfortunate situation has arisen in which Kluwer Academic Publishers no longer can support the publication of the Space Debris Journal, the only peer-reviewed journal in its field. The simple reason is that not enough good papers were submitted to ensure a steady flow of papers to publish. We believe this may be due to a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, workload and associated funding priorities; the dependence of the community on limited data resources, e.g., space surveillance sensors and high quality orbital data, hypervelocity impact facilities, and other capital resources; and the “capture” of many papers in well-established venues such as the IAF, COSPAR, and dedicated debris conferences. We appreciate very much the efforts of authors, referees, and Kluwer Academic Publishers in publishing eight issues contained in two volumes. Many outstanding papers have been published. All contributors deserve a big thank you for their effort by the complete space debris community. The problems associated with space debris are likely to become more important in the future. While the Space Debris Journal was primarily a forum for space debris specialists and was very useful in transferring information, it has helped also to raise the awareness of the space problem in a wider circle. As much more needs to be done in space debris research, especially concerning the application of debris preventative measures, we are convinced that there is a continuing and established need for a Space Debris Journal. We sincerely hope that in some future time, the Space Debris Journal will reappear; in the mean time, we encourage you to continue to seek publication of your papers in peer-reviewed journals. Ph. ANZ-MEADOR W. FLURY D. KESSLER Chief Editors Space Debris 2, 199, 2000. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Space Debris Springer Journals
