RCFS welcomes Camelia Kuhnen as an Associate Editor. We are also pleased to announce that Daniel Paravisini, Steven Kaplan, and Bilge Yilmaz are continuing as Associate Editors. We thank retiring Associate Editor Viral Acharya.
All changes are effective July 1, 2017, except Viral Acharya, whose term ended in 2016.
Beginning January 24, we are putting our check payments temporarily on hold for all three journals. This is due to both staff leave and updates being made to our bank accounts. During this time, referee payments and author refunds will not be sent out. We will resume sending payments June 1, 2017. If you complete a referee report or receive a refund credit during this time, it will be noted and the check can be processed when our payments recommence.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
