Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy is growing
There has been a steady increase in the flow of manuscripts to this journal, and I'm glad to say that the quality of
submissions has commensurately improved. However, these trends have obviously created a problem, which is that
there was simply not enough space for the range of excellent articles we have been receiving. The Association has
therefore decided to increase the size of the journal by 25%. This should allow us to sustain a relatively short
publication lag, and to maintain the mix of high quality clinical, theoretical and research material that has been the hallmark
of the journal. Thanks to Cambridge University Press, particularly Janet Miles, for continued support and in making
the transition to the larger size so straightforward. Of course, one of the reasons that we receive so many manuscripts
is the fact that we are now one of the largest circulation journals in the field.
As ever, there are other changes in the journal. Nick Tarrier leaves us after a very long and distinguished period as
assistant editor. Thanks to you Nick (but don't assume that this means that you won't get more manuscripts!) Within
the editorial office during 2000 we have had additional assistance from Patrick McKnight, who has now moved on,
and we would like to thank him for the excellent work he put in. Caroline Bradley has retired from the post of assistant
editor; we are grateful to her for her work in this capacity. By way of consolation for our editorial losses, Hermine
Graham and Elizabeth Kuipers have joined the editorial team as assistant editors. I'm looking forward to working with
them over the coming years.
