Although this first issue of 2007 is only in August, there are numerous positive reasons for this delay. Firstly, we took over the journal from Professor Pat Scott and had to 'learn the ropes' so to speak. We also wanted to put our own unique 'stamp' on the journal; not because we did not approve of the old layout, but because we felt it was necessary to create our own sense of identity. Most of this year was spent setting up our review process, creating a new layout for the journal, sourcing advertising, getting the journal online, and establishing contact with the editorial board. This took a lot longer than we anticipated, but we believe this was necessary in the beginning of our editorialship and we can now work to ensure that a good quality journal is published on a regular basis. Currently the journal is bi-annual, so we will maintain that and ensure you get your second copy before the end of the year. We are exploring several initiatives for the journal that will hopefully add value to the journal and to ergonomics in South Africa (watch this space). We are looking forward to this challenge and hope that we can bring you, the readers, many worthwhile, scientifically sound and interesting papers to read.
