With this first issue of 2014, the Journal of Herpetology welcomes new Co-Editors and begins the process of saying goodbye to the old ones. We are working to make the transition as smooth as possible. Drs. Doan and Bartelt have been handling all manuscripts that are submitted starting 1 January, and Drs. Muths and Perry will continue to handle older manuscripts and assist with other editorial aspects for the foreseeable future.

Let us start with the long “good bye” from the outgoing Co-Editors. We inherited a strong journal and hope that we've been able to improve it. The Journal now looks different, has some new sections and, thanks to technological changes at Allen Press, is much more colorful. We have a new web-site, which hopefully improves access. New papers are posted on it almost as soon as they are accepted, and so are accessible long before they appear in print....
