Fellow, Mark Fraser will be stepping down after six years at the helm of Journal of the Society for Social Work and Research, adjacent to his retirement. The University of Chicago Press is extremely pleased to welcome a new Editor-in-Chief, starting in May with JSSWR’s summer 2016 issue. Fellow, Jeff Jenson is the Philip D. and Eleanor G. Winn Professor for Children and Youth at Risk at the University of Denver. His research focuses on the application of a public health approach to preventing child and adolescent health and behavior problems and on the evaluation of preventive interventions aimed at promoting positive youth development. Jeff has been an active member of JSSWR’s Editorial Board since the beginning, and brings a wealth of knowledge to the journal. Read Jeff’s Editorial from the forthcoming summer issue of JSSWR. We are extraordinarily grateful to Mark (and also to Diane Wyant, Managing Editor) for their exemplary work and commitment, and we welcome Editor Jenson to JSSWR!
