It is my pleasure to introduce and offer a belated welcome to one new member of the editorial board, Karama Kanoun. Her term began July 2004 and she has since been serving TSE with noted professionalism. Her brief biographical sketch below presents her accomplishments, expertise, and interests. The role of the editorial board is very important and being a member of the board is a challenging and time consuming. The members of the editorial board are responsible for selecting reviewers for papers submitted to the journal and for making publication decisions. Many of them also assist in the preparation of our various special issues. The editorial board also engages in regular discussion about policy issues facing TSE. These activities are undertaken voluntarily and coexist with existing professional responsibilities.
