Burton to be Editor-in-Chief of ET&C in 2012
The SETAC World Council has approved the appointment of G. Allen Burton as Editor-in-Chief of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, effective 1 January 2012. Burton’s selection was made last month, following a search spearheaded by the ET&C Editors and liaisons from the SETAC Publications Advisory Council. During 2011, Burton will serve as Editor for the new ET&C Focus articles and as Co-Editor of the journal as he and ET&C’s Founding Editor -in-Chief Herb Ward work together in this transitional year.
This year also will see the staffing of a new ET&C editorial office at the University of Michigan, where Burton is Professor in the School of Natural Resources and Environment and Director of the Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research. In the interim, the current editorial office at Rice University will continue to operate, maintaining continuity of publication, while familiarizing new staff with journal policy and procedures and ensuring that the transition is seamless.
In addition to having served as president of SETAC in 2007, Allen Burton has been an ET&C Editor since 2009 and chaired the SETAC International Programs Committee in 1995. He has been a member of numerous national and international panels and committees, including those of the U.S. EPA’s Science Advisory Board and National Research Council. When you see him at SETAC meetings in Milan and Boston this year, we hope that you will offer him your support and your ideas.
