Happy New Year to you all,
I very much hope everyone
had the opportunity to relax
and recharge over the festive
period?
This editorial is my last as
Editor of your journal and as
such is written with mixed
emotions. I am, of course,
extremely sad to be standing
down after over a decade, but
at the same time, I am thrilled
that Professor Bhaskar Somani will be taking over and
undoubtedly steering the journal to greater and greater
heights. I will enjoy watching the JCU progress and will
continue to enjoy and learn from the journal and its outstanding
authorship.
It would be remiss of me to miss this opportunity to
thank all those friends and colleagues who have made my
time with the JCU so enjoyable and memorable, although
my apologies in advance that I cannot name every single
person in this short editorial. In particular, my thanks to the
Editorial Board both present and past, the team at SAGE
who have been so incredibly supportive throughout my tenure
and, of course, the authors who have entrusted the JCU
with their valuable manuscripts. I am also grateful to you
the readers and subscribers and reviewers whose support
for the journal has been unstinting and a cornerstone of its
success.
Thank you also to BAUS Trustees and Executive, again
past and present, who have been so strong in their support
of, and their contribution to, the JCU, in particular Adrian
Joyce and the late John Anderson who gave me the opportunity
to serve as its editor.
My last expression of gratitude belongs to Professor
Justin Vale who had the vision to create the journal, encouraged
me to apply for the role all those years ago and has
supported both the journal and me as Editor ever since.
Thank you all as ever, and I wish Bhaskar and the JCU
all the very best.
Ian Pearce
It is a great privilege and honour
to fill the shoes of Professor Ian
Pearce and be selected as the
incoming Editor in Chief of
JCU. I am really grateful to
BAUS for entrusting me with
this role and I hope I can take the
journal onwards and upwards. It
is something I am looking forward
to and hope we can work
towards making it more recognised,
enjoyable and impactful.
While the journal is widely read, we are keen to take it
to the next stage which allows work done by BAUS sections
and NICE to be published and shared via it. The editorial
board will be streamlined to have subsection editors
with a mixture of National and International board members.
The submission and review process will be robust,
the decision-making prompt and efficient, and we will
improve on the reviewer pool to help us achieve this.
The journal has now been in existence for 13 years and
was started by Justin Vale as BJMSU. During this time, it
has gone from strength to strength. As we wait for the outcome
of its inclusion into PubMed, we must work harder
to go beyond and make it a frontline journal which becomes
an automatic choice for members to submit their work
into. There will be themed special issues and the website
will become more responsive.
JCU is your journal, and we would encourage you to submit
your articles to it. With a big backlog of case reports, we
might have to suspend them for the foreseeable future.
However, we will work with the editorial board and reviewers
to ensure a wide variety of clinical and subspecialty articles.
I am extremely grateful to Professor Ian Pearce for
encouraging me to apply for this post and to the BAUS trustees
and executive for giving me the time and freedom to
take the journal forwards and enter the next stage in British
Urology. We will, of course, continue to work with the current
team in SAGE and welcome your comments and feedback,
while we continue to grow and enjoy the journal.
