   Dear Colleagues,

   This note introduces me as the new editor of the Journal of Research in
Crime  and Delinquency, a position I am honored to assume. The transition
has been shorter than normal, and I have just started to catch my breath
after starting to learn the ropes.
   Two  things were immediately apparent when  I started acting as editor
on September  1st. First, I was impressed and immensely grateful for how
well the journal had been run under the leadership of Clay Hartjen and
the managerial  skills of Elizabeth Panuccio. There was a pile of new
manuscripts to be reviewed and sent to referees and another pile waiting
for a decision after reviews had been completed. Everything was in order
and ready to go. Second, I noticed how big the piles were. Then I real-
ized that being an editor involves quite a lot of work, which increased
my  appreciation of what Clay and Elizabeth have done. It is rewarding
work,  however, because the journal attracts manuscripts from first-rate
   As  readers know  well, JRCD   has  consistently published excellent
research on a range of topics. This has been going on for 45 years now.
Lloyd Ohlin  was the editor of Volume 1, Number 1, published in January
1964. Authors  in that issue included Albert Reiss, Leslie Wilkins, Ron
Akers, and  Lyle Shannon, among  others. The international scope of the
journal was evident in that first issue, which included the article, New
Prediction and Classification Methods in Criminology, by Wilkins and
Macnaughton-Smith   of the Home Office Research Unit. And the very first
article, An Empirical Test of Differential Association Theory, by Al Reiss
and A. Lewis Rhodes presented the kind of theory-based empirical research
that the journal has continued to publish.
   Some  things have changed  over 45 years. A 1-year subscription (two
issues) was $4.50-individual or institutional. An endpaper announced the
11th annual meeting of the National Institute on Crime and Delinquency to
be held at Boston's Statler Hilton, where single rooms could be reserved for
up  to $12.50. Reiss and Rhodes (then at the University of Michigan)
included the following footnote in their article:
