Precision Agric (2007) 8:253 DOI 10.1007/s11119-007-9047-8 EDITORIAL John V. Stafford Æ Margaret A. Oliver Published online: 2 December 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007 We are planning three new initiatives for Precision Agriculture that we hope readers will appreciate. The ﬁrst is that we shall now include reviews of books that are relevant to the precision agriculture community. The value of such a section was highlighted by a book that Margaret has just reviewed which is important to all those engaged in sampling the environment. The book, Sampling for Natural Resource Monitoring, by Jaap de Gruitjer, Dick Brus, Marc Bierkens and Martin Knotters has been published by Springer and so it is very appropriate that this should be the ﬁrst review that we publish. As editors, we look forward to including the reviews of other books that are relevant to the precision agri- culture community. Therefore, we should like the readership and publishers to recommend suitable books and we will choose reviewers who have expertise in the particular subject of the book. For those submitting a book review to the web site, the appropriate section for authors is under ‘Review’. The second initiative is to include ‘Letters to the Editor’. This will enable some short discussion papers of no more than two printed pages in the Journal that might elicit a response from our readers. To submit such a letter, authors should use ‘Communications’ on the web site to upload their letter. Finally, we have decided to publish a list of all reviewers in the last issue for each year as a means of showing our gratitude; without them the Journal could not publish papers in which we can have conﬁdence. We both look forward to receiving potential titles of books to review and letters to the editor in the coming months. J. V. Stafford M. A.
