The History of Economics Society would like to thank Stephen Meardon for his excellent work as editor of Journal of History of Economic Thought. In his five years as editor, Dr. Meardon made significant advances in the web presence of the journal, tackled enormous hurdles to make the journal easily available on-line to HES members, and instituted the new Accepted Paper Series. The latter makes papers accepted to JHET immediately available to a wide audience. Under Dr. Meardon’s leadership the journal has achieved a 5-year impact factor of 0.419. We congratulate him on his accomplishments.
