This will be the last issue of our publication under the heading The Journal of Social Work Values and Ethics. Our next issue Volume 19, Number 1, our new name will be The International Journal of Social Work Values and Ethics. ASWB is no longer our publisher.  Our new publisher is The International Federation of Social Workers.  Their home office is in Switzerland. Thus, we are seeking more members of our board that are outside of the USA.  Following are new members:

Pascal Rudin, Ph.D. is a staff member of International Federation of Social Workers and will be our new publisher. Jayne Wood from ASWB will be leaving our policy board while Dr. Rudin will be replacing her. Eveliina Heino, Ph.D. is joining our editorial board from Finland where she is a lecture at the University of Helsinki and specializes in research and social policy. Also joining our editorial board is Baiju P. Vareed, Ph.D., from Canada, but was raised in India. He is a professor at MacEwan University. Rigaud Joseph, Ph.D. is a social work professor at the California State University at San Bernardino. He will be joining our editorial board.  Our first international representative to join our copy editor board is Bishnu Mohan Dash. Ph.D. who is an Assistant Professor at the University of New Delhi.

A great deal of work goes into each issue of the Journal of Social Work Values and Ethics. All work on our journal is completed by volunteers and no one—including our publisher ASWB—makes a financial profit from the publication. In addition, we have unsung heroes on our editorial board who contribute to the existence of our journal. Because we have a rule that requires our manuscripts to be assessed anonymously, I cannot offer public recognition of their names. I thank them! However, I can publicly announce the names of our hard- working copy editors. Their work is not confidential. For their major contributions to this issue, I must publicly thank:

•   Donna DeAngelis

•   Kathleen Hoffman

•   Eric Levine

•   Ann McAllister

•   Alison MacDonald

•   Melissa Schaub

•   Jennifer Wood

I also thank the book reviewers for the generous gift of their time to read and write thoughtful reviews:

•   Bishnu Dash •   Peter Kindle
