I would like to offer my thanks to those individuals listed below for their thoughtful reviews of manuscripts submitted to the American Biology Teacher in 2014. My first year as editor of ABT has been both rewarding and pleasant because of the excellent work of our reviewers and because of the gracious responses from our authors and thanks to the amazing team behind the scenes that has produced a first rate and highly respected journal.
It has been my sincere pleasure to work with our managing editor Mark Penrose and copyeditor Richard Earles this year supported by the design team including Michelle Finney who does a brilliant job on our covers along with Assistant Editor Kathy Westrich who is both a reviewer but is also in charge of ABT cover art. This year we have expanded our range of commentators and in addition to publishing the thoughts of the NABT president, we regularly invite additional experts to offer their views on important topics in biology and biology education. These invited commentaries now join the wonderful pieces written by Douglas Allchin who continues to contribute his ruminations in the Sacred Bovine column. We like to feature reviews of interest to biology teachers and are lucky to have Elizabeth Cowles coordinating our book review section and Remy Dou heading up our newly- combined Teaching Materials and Media Review section. Thanks very much to Chris Mansour who has recently “retired” from his role as the teaching materials review editor.
Last, but most certainly not least, I would like to offer my thanks to reviewing editors Peggy Ward, Kim Murie, Kevin Bonney and Emily Weigel who have worked with me almost on a daily basis to process the 212 articles that were newly submitted to ABT in 2014. Each article is examined by at least three reviewers and the reviewing editors then take these comments and synthesize them into a coherent list of recommendations shared with authors who are asked to respond in a revised version of their original submission. This takes quite a bit of time for reviewers, reviewing editors and authors but, not surprisingly, the final products have been well written and compelling contributions to the literature of biology education.
I am certain that my first year as editor would not have been as pleasant and rewarding without the continuing efforts of everyone involved with ABT. I am already looking forward to 2015. Keep those manuscripts coming!
