The editor in Chief, Professor Ming Hung Wong, sent the following message to SEGH members:
I am very pleased with the new impact factor which indicated the articles included in our EGAH are interesting, important and timely. The past few years, we have received an increasing number of high quality papers from more countries, addressing various current issues on environmental geochemistry of elements and their environmental and human health. There is no doubt that EGAH will scale new height in the very near future, judging from the momentum we have experienced the past few years.
May I use this opportunity to thank our publisher at Springer, Betty and Paul for their continuous guidance, Andrew (Hursthouse) and members of SEGH board’s contribution in shaping the future directions of EGAH, the coordinating editors for overseeing papers assigned to them, and the reviewers for commenting on the papers. I sincerely hope that you will continue to support EGAH by serving on the board, and serving as reviewers. Nevertheless, most important of all, send your high quality papers to EGAH.
Ming Hung Wong,
Editor in Chief, Environmental Geochemistry & Health
On behalf of the SEGH board I would also like to record our thanks to Springer staff and in particular personal best wishes to Betty Van Herk, who retired from Springer on 31st July 2014. Betty and her colleagues have supported SEGH over many years, beyond the role of publishing the journal by discussing SEGH conference themes and topics to help raise both the Society and Journal profile. A great team and part of a wider SEGH “family”. Our conferences continue to be successful and popular, organised with great enthusiasm and good scientific focus. It is wonderful to see this translating into high quality papers with increasing impact. Don't forget, you can access EGAH and its back catalogue through www.segh.net as a full member of SEGH.
Professor Andrew Hursthouse
International President, SEGH
