With this issue of JAPA we mark the end of a forty-four-year relationship with International Universities Press. We are grateful to Martin Azarian, Margaret Emery, and the dedicated staff at IUP for their efforts over the years and for their help in effecting a smooth transition. We look forward now to establishing a mutually satisfying relationship with our new publishing partner, The Analytic Press, whose staff is working with us in a wide variety of ways, devising new marketing strategies and carrying out the myriad tasks involved in providing publication services. We are delighted to be working with Paul Stepansky, John Kerr, and their colleagues at The Analytic Press.
A second milestone is the inauguration in this issue of the JAPA Review of Books, edited by associate editor Glen O. Gabbard. We have reformatted the book section as a journal-within-a-journal, with its own table of contents appearing on the back cover. Our intent is to include commentary pieces in the review, as well as book essays, book reviews, and letters to the editor specifically addressing book reviews.
The inaugural commentary piece is an article by Robert Wallerstein on Merton Gill's view of the relationship between psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. The article elaborates a discussion of this subject in Wallerstein's review (JAPA 43/2) of Gill's final book. We plan to include other commentary articles in future issues, as well as articles on writing and creativity.
Readers will note that with this issue JAPA changes its reference style. For details, contributors are directed to the inside front cover and to the reference lists after articles.
This issue is also an occasion to welcome six new members to the JAPA editorial board. In May 1996 these distinguished colleagues were elected by the Executive Council of the American Psychoanalytic Association to three-year terms beginning in January 1997.
