Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
As I take the reins from Ernie Drucker as American Editor for Addiction Research and Theory (ART) I can only express something of a sense of awe at succeeding a man who is not only a pioneer in harm reduction, but a solid scientist and scholar. This job will be all the more difficult as a result of the high level of quality and rigor that Ernie, John Davies, Doug Cameron, and Stanton Peele have brought to the journal as the senior editorial team. I hope to be up to the task not only of joining these folks I consider giants in the field, but of carrying on Ernie's fine legacy. Of course, in standing with giants, I also stand on their shoulders, drawing from their ongoing scholarly and scientific examples guidance for my own task of helping to continue the fine reputation of ART and building on that reputation in the years to come.
