On behalf of the DPS Committee, I am pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Faith Vilas as the first editor of the Planetary Science Journal. Faith has substantial editorial experience along with a broad range of knowledge in planetary science and an openness to modern ideas for this new journal.
The AAS press release announcing Dr. Vilas as the first editor of the Planetary Science Journal can be found here:
I would also like to heartily thank the DPS Publications Subcommittee, chaired by Dr. Ross Beyer, for their diligent work in both working with the AAS to help establish the PSJ and also in their efforts to select the first editor. There were a number of excellent applicants for the position.
Don’t forget! The PSJ will begin taking manuscript submissions on December 2, 2019. Please go to https://journals.aas.org/planetary-science-journal/.
