Referees, Referrers, Advisors, and Other Helpers

Starting a new scholarly journal with an interdisciplinary and trans-regional approach can be a daunting task. Therefore, we wish to thank the many people who have already helped us with the task of double-blind refereeing, either through reading and commenting on manuscripts, or by referring us to people who were likely to be better qualified. Many of these people helped us with manuscripts that have not yet been published, but they all deserve our thanks
