This year will hold some exciting changes and developments for *Himalayan
Linguistics*. After eight years at the helm, I am stepping down as editor
of this journal with the publication of this issue. It has been a wonderful
odyssey, and I hope that I have been able to contribute to the growth and
recognition of this journal. As I pivot to become a member of the editorial
board, the lead editorial structure will be handled by three esteemed
colleagues: Lauren Gawne, You-Jing Lin, and Gregory D.S. Anderson. Lauren
and Greg were past editorial and advisory board members and were
instrumental in helping with challenges such as peer reviewer
identification and discussions about journal management. You-Jing, along
with her student assistants, in addition to serving as an editorial board
member, has been a critically important ally and friend in the formatting
and publication process. I am grateful to Lauren, Greg, and You-Jing for
agreeing to move forward in this leadership role of *HL*, including some
planned updates and improvements to its operation. Please keep your eye on
the journal's home page in the coming months to see these changes put into


I also would like to thank all of the members of the *HL* editorial and
advisory boards for their insight and collaborative spirit over these past
eight years.

Remember that *Himalayan Linguistics* is a completely open access and free
academic journal. This approach comes with many benefits to authors and
readers, but also demands a great deal of sustained time and effort from
entirely voluntary editorial and advisory teams. I am continuously awed and
grateful for their ongoing commitment to the survival and success of this

As always, if you are interested in submitting your work to *HL* for
peer-review and possible publication, please visit our web page. There you
can learn more about the scope of the journal and the submission policies.
