On behalf of the SLA Executive Committee and the JLA editorship, I’m very pleased to announce the appointment of the incoming JLA editorial team for the term of January 2011 through December 2013.

Alexandra (Misty) Jaffe, Professor of Linguistics at Cal State University, Long Beach, will serve as Editor. Misty brings to the position 6 years of experience as Co-editor and Editor-in-Chief of the Elsevier journal Linguistics and Education. Paul Garrett, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Temple University, will serve as Associate Editor. I thank Misty and Paul for agreeing to take on these duties.

I also want to thank our current editors, Paul Manning and Miiyako Inoue, for the stellar job they have done and continue to do. Under their direction the journal has experienced an unprecedented increase in submissions and accompanying visibility. Paul and Miyako will be turning over to the new editors a robust enterprise that they have positioned well to enjoy further growth and new development.

Congratulations and best wishes to both editorial teams.

Regards,
Kit Woolard
President, SLA
