The Analytical Scientist’s 100th issue started hitting desks this week – we hope you enjoy the shiny gold cover as much as we did! Thanks to everyone who has joined us on the journey. In the spirit of tradition and harmony, we returned to our original 2013 Power List format of 100 names: find out who made this year’s list below. At the same time, we wanted to look to the future by asking this year’s Power Listers about the “single biggest challenge” facing the field. You’ll find their responses in The Grand Challenge, and further reflections in my editorial. Here’s to another 100 issues!

All the best, James Strachan, Editor
