A warm welcome to our new Journal Managing Editor, Laurelle Tunks

The College would like to extend a warm welcome to Laurelle Tunks, our new Journal Managing Editor.  Laurelle is a qualified librarian and comes to us with a wealth of experience in research, indexing and editing publications.  She has managed libraries for CSIRO and other federal agencies, and has developed systems and databases to support academic research and peer review processes.  With many years experience as an editor she brings skills and knowledge that will enable us to develop the Journal for the future.  Laurelle is a welcome addition to our National Office team!

The College received a much larger than anticipated response to our call for applications for the position of Journal Managing Editor, including from many highly skilled professionals with relevant experience in this field.  We thank all of our members for creating such a vibrant organisation which in turn has stimulated this enthusiastic response from those wishing to work with us.

Laurelle is looking forward to meeting and working with everyone in the road safety community – and getting started on the next issue of the Journal. If you would like to contact Laurelle about any journal related issues, including submitting papers or articles, or to welcome her to her new role, please do so via journaleditor@acrs.org.au or phone 02 6290 2509.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing editor Deborah Banks for her considerable efforts in producing the last several issues of our journal.  We wish her well on her travels through China!
