Letter from the Editor

Over the almost six decades of the AIChE Journal, we have published many papers that are now considered classics and form the basis for the present practice of chemical engineering. I have asked each member of my editorial staff to identify the papers in their areas of interest that they consider to be classics, based on impact, number of citations or other criteria they may choose. These papers are being assembled into a subject area virtual issue of the Journal that will be freely available on the Web for a period of three months. The first such virtual issue, Part A of Process Systems Engineering has now appeared. The three remaining parts of this virtual issue will appear in succeeding months, to be followed by virtual issues in other subject areas.  I hope you will enjoy reading these virtual issues, reflecting on their content and the advances made by the authors, and noting how important the AIChE Journal has been, and continues to be, to the evolution of our profession.
