New look for Elsevier's Hydrometallurgy journal

Dean Eastbury of Elsevier is the Executive Publisher for Minerals Engineering, International Journal of Mineral Processing, and Hydrometallurgy, amongst others. He has emailed me to advise of major changes to the editorial structure of Hydrometallurgy:

"Nick Welham has decided to step down as Co-Editor after 10 years service in that post but will continue his association with the journal by remaining on the Editorial Board. On behalf of Elsevier, I would like to thank Nick for his efforts in helping to make Hydrometallurgy one of the leading journals in its field, being ranked 5th of 75 journals by ISI in the subject category Metallurgy and Metallurgical Engineering with an impact factor of 2.027.
Jochen Petersen has taken on the newly created role of Editor-in-Chief. He will lead a team of four new Associate Editors whose breadth of knowledge covers all topics that lie within the scope of the journal. They are Mike Adams of Mutis Liber, Perth Australia, Versiane Leão of the Federal University of Ouro Preto, Brazil, Jesús Muñoz of Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain and Sadegh Safarzadeh at the University of Utah, USA.

At the same time there have been some retirements and new appointments to the Editorial Board and all details of the new structure can be found on the journal homepage. This is an exciting time for Hydrometallurgy and I’m sure that the new team will continue to build on past successes.

May I offer my best wishes for 2013 to all those associated with Elsevier’s mineral processing and metallurgy titles, and I hope to meet some of you in person throughout the year."
