Island Arc Award: Message from the Editor
A new 'Island Arc Award' has been established to recognize Island Arc articles that contribute the most to our journal both through scientific achievement and impact in the scientific community. We hope this award will act as an encouragement for authors to contribute further to their science and our journal. The first Award was presented in September 2007 at the Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of Japan. The Award will be judged by a panel consisting of the two Editors-in-Chief and all Editorial Advisory Board members and will consist of a certificate signed by both JGS and Wiley, a memorial medal and US$500 (in total). One article will be selected each year for this Award. Don't miss the chance! Send your ground-breaking results to Island Arc today! We are looking forward to welcoming submissions of an even greater number of first-rate articles!
