Electrolyte concentration and soil conditions: The impact of Quirk and Schofield, 1955 - Landmark Virtual Issue


Last year at this time, The European Journal of Soil Science published its first Landmark Paper, one of the many important papers published in the Journal and its predecessor The Journal of Soil Science which have inspired changes in our appreciation of the way in which soils function. We now, in this first issue of 2013, publish our second Landmark Paper, that by Quirk and Schofield from 1955.

To accompany and complement the publication of Landmark Paper No.2., we are also publishing an online virtual issue which comprises a selection of other papers published in The Journal up until the present day which have used and developed the ideas first set out by Quirk and Schofield. I am grateful to David Rimmer, Guy Kirk and Guilhem Bourrié for identifying the publications contained within the virtual issue
