From the Editor

As editor, my job is ideally to go over the articles and work with the authors to make them better. As copyeditor, I also end up correcting misspellings, punctuation, typos, and (in some cases) grammar. Copyediting is what takes up the most time while I’m actually assembling an issue. Second to that is article selection—deciding what to include, and what I can’t this month. Those two jobs are, by and large, why I decided to shift to an every-other-month schedule—it was taking almost the entire time between issues to do those two jobs, and leaving me practically no time to work with authors to make their articles better. I’m looking for that to change, beginning with the next issue. I fully intend to begin—effective December 1, 2015, just to set myself a goal—at least acknowledging every submission, and where I think it can be improved after a read, to actually send the author a critique and suggestions. Please take these in the spirit intended, and let’s make FT better for all!
