January saw two new co-editors, Professor Peter Kraftl (University of Leicester) and Dr Kavita Datta (Queen Mary University of London), join Dr Paul Wood (Loughborough University) at the helm of Area, one of the five journals published by the Society. The editors look to build on Area’s strengths, while taking the journal in some new directions.
