20 Nonprofit & Voluntary Sector Q. 1 (1991)

OBSERVANT readers of this   quarterly will note that the time elapsed between
      conference and  publication of the conference issue is shrinking. The
papers  showcased  in this issue were originally presented at the AVAS confer-
ence  in Seattle in mid-October of 1989. Less than a year later, they had been
thoroughly  reviewed and  rewritten in response to a searching peer review
process; they now enter the hands of NVSQ readers less than eighteen months
after initial presentation.
    In the world of journals that is a rapid pace, and credit belongs both to
 the diligent authors and the able and persistent coeditors of this issue. Jim
 Long of Washington  State University coordinated the process, following on
 his yeoman's service as chair of the Program Committee for the 1989 AVAS
 conference. Working with equal commitment  on the issue were coeditors Jeff
 Brudney and Rich Steinberg. I appreciate the fine work each of these stalwart
 ARNOVA   members   played in shepherding  the publication process for the
 conference issue.
    In addition to the conference papers, this issue presents two papers from
NVSQ's  regular submissions flow. In Not-for-Profit Organizations in the Soviet
Union,  Thomas  A. Reiner addresses  a set of timely issues that need to be
tracked  throughout Eastern Europe  at this time of social and political sea
change. In fascinating juxtaposition to the Soviet experience, Mark S. Rosen-
traub examines  the experience of the state of Texas as it faced the budgetary
cuts of the 1980s. The reader will have to decide whether there is cultural lag
or cultural lead in these two cases.
    This issue concludes with reviews of Teresa Odendahl's Charity Begins at
Home   and the edited collection of papers Beneficence, Philanthropy and the
Public Good. I am grateful to Professors Bloland and Martin for their judicious
reviews of these important sources.
    In the previous issue we welcomed a new  international journal, Voluntas,
to the field. This time we greet another far-reaching new journal, Nonprofit
Management  and Leadership, coedited by long-time ARNOVA members  Dennis
Young  and  David  Billis. It seems certain that NML will be successful, and
NVSQ   sends it every good wish for success. It will be useful to have a review
that can  present articles with a specific focus on management:  this has
never been  a strong suit or central interest for NVSQ or its predecessor, the
Journal of Voluntary Action Research.
    Now  there are four major journals in the field-not ignoring the excellent
Journal of Volunteer Administration-so authors will be able to target their
submissions  more intelligently. NVSQ continues to welcome research articles,
whether  theoretical or data-based, qualitative or quantitative. Our in-box is
fuller than ever, and we welcome  the continuing growth and expansion  of
this field of scholarly research.
