Building on strength

Matthew D Ringel
2020 Endocrine-Related Cancer  
I am humbled to have been selected as the 5th Editor-in-Chief of Endocrine-Related Cancer (ERC). It is truly an honor and privilege to follow in the footsteps of Profs Vivian James, Marc Lippman, James Fagin, and, for the nearly ten years, Prof. Charis Eng. Having served previously as an Associate-Editor of ERC, and having similar positions for other journals, I come to this role with experience, but also excitement at the prospects moving forward. I am very pleased that I am beginning with ERC
more » ... beginning with ERC at a very strong point in its history with an outstanding editorial board, a remarkably dedicated staff through partnership with Bioscientifica, a superb team of international advisors, and a strong reputation in the field. Indices that support the impact of the journal continue to be high, including impact factor, H-index, number of downloads, and other metrics. I am starting my tenure as Editor-in-Chief with the journal in a very strong position due to the superb leadership and vision of my predecessors. This strength will allow us to move forward with new initiatives to further expand its impact.
