Editorial Quantum Information Processing, Vol. 7, No. 1, February 2008 (© 2008) DOI: 10.1007/s11128-008-0072-y It is a pleasure for me to assume the position of Editor-in-Chief of Quantum Information Processing. Since its inception 6 years ago, David Cory, as Editor-in-Chief, and Timothy Havel, as Managing Editor, have established this journal as a respected repository documenting signifi- cant advances in quantum information science and technology. I hope to maintain their high standards, while at the same time encouraging sub- missions from all of the international quantum information communities. New Editorial advisors are soon to be added. Beginning this year, the journal is using an online submission and peer-review system, which it is hoped will assist in expediting the entire publication process. Research in quantum information processing, including quantum computation and quantum communication, continues to report many sig- nificant advances along with significant obstacles still to be overcome. Quantum decoherence mechanisms are omnipresent. Possible quantum computer implementations ranging from ion traps to Josephson junc- tions are attempting to move along the formidable road to scalable fault- tolerant quantum computing. In the meantime, small special-purpose quantum information processing will likely become a reality. Also, quantum cryptographic systems are now at the developmental stage, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quantum Information Processing Springer Journals
