In a Letter from the Editor in the latest issue of the Journal of Chemical Ecology, John Romeo, who has served as Editor-in-Chief for the journal over the past couple of decades, announced that he is stepping down and that Gary Felton of Penn State University will take over in this position beginning with the February issue of the Journal. Romeo stated, “Gary brings breadth, leadership, and experience to the Journal, as well as a commitment to keeping our standards high and continuing to raise our profile in the competitive publishing arena. I am pleased and confident that the Journal is in good hands.”

The members of Penn State's Center for Chemical Ecology and the Department of Entomology, where Gary has served as Department Head for over 15 years, are proud that he is going to take the reins of this journal that serves as a major research communication channel for the International Society for Chemical Ecology.

Congratulations, Gary, from your colleagues here at Penn State!
