As of this issue, we have chosen to omit the “season” in the issue title. We have done this because the label has tended to blur the fact that there is an ongoing publication process of articles in an issue leading up to the initiation of the next issue. Besides, the season label makes less sense today than it did in the early days of JMM, considering that many of our readers now are from a different hemisphere than those of us on the editorial staff.
