Termination of editorship

This is my 25th year at the helm of the journal, Construction Management and Economics. I have enjoyed being at the centre of this and especially enjoyed interacting with so many people in our academic community; authors, referees, editorial board and publishers. There is a huge amount of support among the construction management community for this journal. Long may it continue!

However, nothing is forever. My contract as Editor-in-Chief has come to an end. Taylor & Francis, the publishers of Construction Management and Economics, have started the search for a new Editor-in-Chief. We are hoping that the new person will soon be identified and that the transition can be effected soon. Whatever happens, this is my last year in the post.

I look forward to new challenges and opportunities!

    It will be really hard for T&F to find an editor like Will. I have never seen such a hard working editor. Salute you Will for the way you have elevated this journal to such a high standard. Enjoyed going through your comments on a number of manuscripts I published in this journal. I would personally miss your services Will. Best wishes for your future assignment.
