Abstract

As Work, Employment & Society enters its 21st year, the co-Editors of WES for 2005-2007 take stock of the recent progress of the Journal, as shown by three main trends: regular upward growth in submissions; pluralism in terms of theory, method, and disciplinary contribution; and increasing internationalisation of the readership, author base, substantive coverage, and reputation of WES. Key features of the Journal which are believed to have contributed both to the successful establishment of the Journal in the first place and to its continuing high achievement are identified: collegiate ethos, reliance on in-house peer review, an active Editorial Board, and insistence on meaningful feed-back to authors.
