In This Issue: Building Our Airplane While Flying It
In this issue Catherine Sands and colleagues offer a detailed account of their eight-year effort to simultaneously launch and make adjustments to a food policy council in western Massachusetts while keeping its momentum going. They share the trials and tribulations and lessons learned—including many positive outcomes—in Building an Airplane While Flying It: One Community's Experience with Community Food Transformation.
The challenge of building an airplane while flying it applies to JAFSCD as well. Over the past year we have been working to maintain our quality and volume of published content while switching to a new review and publishing platform at www.FoodSystemsJournal.org. We, too, have had our share of challenges: Amy has been maintaining our old peer review and publishing websites while designing and migrating content, including subscriber records, to the new platform. I’ve been continuing to guide manuscripts through our old peer review system while learning the new system; we began taking submissions there in late September. It has taken many hours of work, but we are now reviewing and publishing new papers in the new system, and all JAFSCD content since our launch in 2010 are on the new site.
