   This issue is a landmark in the continuing evolution of Family Court Review. I want to
take this opportunity to acquaint readers with developments at their publication in this
separate column, which will be followed by more traditional Editorial Notes and Guest
Editorial Notes devoted to this particular issue.

                          BLACKWELL PUBLISHING

   This is the first issue of FCR published by Blackwell Publications. Blackwell is the lead-
ing publisher of journals for learned societies in the world. It publishes over 700 journals
in partnership with more than 550 academic and professional societies. More information
about Blackwell can be found at www.blackwellpublishing.com.
   Blackwell was selected as FCR's publisher through a competitive process that took
about eighteen months. Several respected journal publishers submitted proposals to AFCC
which were evaluated by a Committee of the AFCC Board of Directors consisting of Mary
Ferriter, Olga Batsedis, last year's student managing editor, Peter Salem, AFCC's Executive
Director, and myself. We were ably assisted by the advice and counsel of Arline Rotman
and Lisa Spar, a Hofstra Law School Librarian and an expert on the burgeoning world of
electronic publication and resources. We could not have accomplished this process without
the extensive help and counsel the AFCC Board Committee members and our consultants
   The Committee recommended   to the AFCC Board that it choose Blackwell to publish
FCR  for many reasons. Blackwell has impressive marketing and editorial expertise and
experience with interdisciplinary journals (it publishes, for example, the Negotiation
Journal of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School and Cornell Law School's
Journal of Empirical Legal Studies). Blackwell will provide FCR readers with electronic
access to past and present articles.
   Most importantly, the people at Blackwell are excited about the mission of FCR and
AFCC.  Their goal is to give FCR the broadest possible audience around the world. We
welcome  the opportunity to work with them to do so. The student staff and I thank
Otis Dean of Blackwell and his colleagues for making this major publishing transition as
seamless as possible.

                                 NEW   COVER

   The first change readers will notice in this new era for FCR is its new cover and look.
AFCC   redesigned its logo. We thus needed to redesign FCR's cover. We worked with a
