Our Co-ordinating Editor Professor Christopher Eccleston has decided to step away from his role as Co-Ed after more than 10 years of fantastic leadership. Chris has steered PaPaS through that time with skill and wisdom. His tenure has seen PaPaS enhance its well-earned reputation and he has represented us exceptionally well externally and within Cochrane. Chris leaves the role with PaPaS in rude health, at the start of a renewed funding term, with a very high equivalent impact factor and well placed to move forward. All of us at PaPaS would like to offer our wholehearted thanks and wish Chris well with what comes next.
