In Your View
The holiday season is a time to rest, to restore… and to reflect

Perhaps you have been a regular subscriber to The Analytical Scientist since the beginning (2013!). Perhaps you are a freshly-minted member of our ever-growing community. Or perhaps you browse our website, seeking out the content most relevant to you. Whichever type of reader you may be, we sincerely appreciate you and your support. And we ask each of you to join us in a moment of reflection. The festive season – with family get-togethers and (hopefully) an escape from typical daily demands – is always a good time to sit down, look back, and look ahead.
It’s nearly six years since the first issue of The Analytical Scientist; how do we, the four editors, now see our role? Well, it hasn’t changed: working with hundreds of contributors, we aim to share thought-provoking research, to highlight current developments from new angles, and to present you with diverse, substantiated viewpoints. Certainly, we do not wish to impose our vision on you, but rather to help you sharpen and hone your own ideas. And we do all this on a regular basis, through our monthly print magazines, our weekly e-newsletters and our online presence.
As we are a conduit for analytical science, it would be folly not to investigate ourselves as closely as we do the scientific content we publish. The observant among you will have noticed our newly designed website www.theanalyticalscientist.com, which will change the way we deliver content to you – but your opinion is essential for helping us choose the content that you want to read.
A good publication is made in constant dialogue with the reader. You keep us sharp. We invite you to tell us where we are succeeding – and how we can do better. Why not visit the new website and leave a comment on an article you do (or don’t) like? Or alternatively email email@example.com.
Wishing you happy holidays and a fruitful new year!
Charlotte, Joanna, Frank and Rich
