This issue marks a new beginning for ALT-J ; it is the first with our new publishers, Taylor & Francis, under their Carfax imprint. Re-launching a journal is, we have found, an interesting process.

It isn’t often that we have the chance to re-assess what is important to us, so as editors we grasped this particular challenge with glee.
