- Change of Editorial Team
This will be the last issue produced by the current editorial team. Byron Bender ends over half a century's hands-on association with the journal, having served as Editor from 1992 through 2006 between two periods as Managing Editor (1964–1991 and 2007–2018); Bob Blust served as Review Editor from 1999 till 2018; and I served as Editor from 2007 till this year. We will remain associated with the journal as members of the Editorial Advisory Board.
We will be replaced from 2019 by a different looking team. There will be three coeditors—Daniel Kaufman, Yuko Otsuka, and Antoinette Schapper—with Owen Edwards as Assistant Editor and Alex Smith as Review Editor.
On behalf of the outgoing team, I would like to thank authors for the constant flow of submissions, and for their generous acceptance of decisions that are not always in their favor; and I would like to wish the incoming team all the best for the future of Oceanic Linguistics. [End Page 517]
