EDITORIAL

A   Journey of Transition

Tim   Bunjevac*,   Gar  Yein  Ngt,  Markus Zimmer* and Philip Langbroek§


This issue of the International Journal for Court Administration (Journal) is a transitional one.
As you can see, there are some exciting changes in the layout and presentation of the journal,
that are intended to improve your reading experience and increase the appeal to the Journal's
diverse international audiences. The refreshing new look is partly also a consequence of our
new  partnership with Ubiquity Press, which has now taken over from Utrecht University as
the journal's international publisher. We are confident that our readers, sponsors and con-
tributors alike will enjoy the benefits of the extensive reach and indexing services that our
new  publisher offers to the journal in numerous outlets around the world. Of course, we
would like to thank the team at Utrecht University for its generous support over the previous
12 years, without which the Journal's progression to the flagship international outlet in court
administration would be difficult to imagine.
  We begin by extending our gratitude to Philip Langbroek, the Journal's inaugural Managing
Editor who, with the assistance of Markus Zimmer, IACA's founding president and Journal
Executive Editor, gave birth to the Journal and nursed it through its infancy. Philip has decided
the time has come to pass the editorial management torch on to our new managing editors,
although he will continue to serve as a Journal editor. Over time, Philip took the initiative to
have the Journal's contents peer-reviewed and recognized by the U.S. government's Library of
Congress and its contents listed in leading international scholarly databases, providing online
access to its contents to a worldwide community. He also tirelessly promoted the Journal in
international circles, building its reputation both among judicial and justice system profes-
sionals and academic and research communities in court management  and administration.
Overtime, he cultivated the interest of distinguished professionals, scholars and researchers
in submitting their work for publication in the Journal. We owe him our collective thanks for
his prodigious efforts and wish him well in his new endeavours.
  Next, you will see that there are some new additions to the Journal's editorial board, so
please allow us to introduce and welcome our two new  (co)managing editors, Dr Gar Yein
Ng  from Buckingham  University in the UK and Dr Tim Bunjevac, from RMIT  University in
Melbourne, Australia. Gar Yein is a Lecturer in Law at the University of Buckingham. She has
taught comparative law in the fields of constitutional law and human rights. Gar Yein's most
recent publications cover issues of judicial skills, the training of judges and the role of judges
vis-a-vis the legislator from a comparative perspective. Previously, she has been an independ-
ent researcher in areas such as court and justice management, public law and procedural
law, particularly at the intersection between law and technology. Gar Yein has continued to
