A note from the editors.
We intend to fill the backlog of issues for our subscribers by averaging more than four issues a year. This plan provides an opportunity for the Michigan Academician to publish special issues on topics of interest to the various sections of the Michigan Academy. If you are considering organizing a theme issue, Festschrift, or symposium volume, we encourage you to contact us.
Our journal has long been a logical choice for publishing research topics germane to the Great Lakes region, a convenient venue for authors with ties to Michigan, and a premier, internationally renowned outlet for some sections of the Michigan Academy. We relish this long tradition and anticipate that the journal will continue to serve these needs admirably. Withal, in our view the journal is also ideally suited to fill a new, increasingly necessary and intellectually exciting role. As the publishing outlet of a society that spans the spectrum of letters, arts, and social and natural sciences, the Michigan Academician is uniquely situated to showcase high quality interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary scholarship before a broad academic audience. As collaborations increasingly transcend disciplinary boundaries, we see the Michigan Academician playing a vital part by publishing research that surpasses the scope of disciplinary journals. We hope you agree.
