  1. Dear Peggy: I am planning an editor-in-chief transition in a few years and am looking for guidance about how to set up the process. IJHC is an association journal, and there are challenges with a current president. No details about the selection of editors are found in the Bylaws. I am thinking about building a small task force with a few assistant editors and other wise persons to create a process and recommendations to International Association for Human Caring’s Board and Bylaws Committee. I would appreciate any suggestions. I have not found much yet on searching the literature. Thanks, Zane
