Autism Research welcomes its new Editor-in-Chief and new Associate Editors. Associate Editors will now be responsible for coordinating the peer review process of articles for various sections of the journal. The journal will expand its coverage to all areas of modern research on autism spectrum and related disorders. The new organizational structure will increase the speed to the first decision and will insure the fair review of papers related to all areas of autism research. The new editorial staff will also increase the number of review papers published by the journal to aid in the education of the INSAR membership.
