Once again, the wheels of change are turning at JRME. This issue marks the beginning of Volume 47, which will be the last volume under my editorship. To facilitate the transition to the new editor, there is a 1–year period during which the work of the journal is shared by the editor and the editor–designate. I am pleased to announce that Jinfa Cai, Professor of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Delaware, is the JRME editor–designate. His term as JRME editor will span Volumes 48–51, from 2017–2020.
