The first issue of volume 13 represents the beginning of an exciting new journey for articles on Pharmacognosy and Natural Products. I thank all the authors who have trusted us with their manuscripts thus far as well as the reviewers who have helped in reviewing for the journal. I look forward to working with the Associate Editors, the Editorial board, Advisory Board and the broader community of authors, reviewers, and readers.
Every 5 years, we undertake a full review of the membership of our Editorial Board, both to allow time-served members a well-deserved break and to add new talent driving the growth of the journal. We are currently constituting the new editorial board that will be available soon in the month of March 2017.
