Happy Holidays and Happy 40th Anniversary!
Happy holidays! We have arrived at that busy time of year. In addition to shopping, decorating and overeating, it is time to reflect on the past year and give thanks. It has been a memorable year for the Journal as we have celebrated our 40th anniversary by reflecting on our past and looking to our future as our authors continue to contribute to the state of the science. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many outstanding professionals who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make this journal possible. From the clinicians and researchers willing to share their contributions with all of us, to the section editiors and reviewers who scrutinize the articles for quality, relevance and commercial bias, to the publishing staff who keep us on schedule and help us to finance and promote a significant product as measured by our impact factor. I am thankful to have the opportunity to serve the wound, ostomy and continenece community in this manner.
We look forward to the continued success of your journal, and we continue to seek your input to help guide the future as an established player on the global stage.
