The Editorial Team of the Journal of Geographical Systems has remained very stable for a remarkable time. After its foundation by Editors-in-Chief, Profs. Manfred M.M. Fischer and Arthur Getis, Dr. Antonio Páez joined the team as junior Editor-in-Chief in 2008 replacing Arthur Getis. Many authors would have been in contact with Dr. Petra Staufer-Steinnocher who for years assisted with editorial matters and who became Associate Editor of the journal in 2018. Regular readers of the Journal will have noticed that, starting in Volume 21, Issue 3 (September 2019), there has been an addition to the Editorial Team, and so it is our pleasure to welcome Prof. Andrés Rodríguez-Pose as a third Editor-in-Chief.

As a past Editor of Economic Geography, and Environment and Planning C: Politics and Space, Andrés brings to the Journal a veritable wealth of editorial experience. We believe that his expertise will strengthen and complement the current expertise of our Editorial Team in GIScience and spatial analysis, spatial econometrics and statistics, and especially in economic geography and regional science.

It is truly a pleasure to welcome Andrés as a new Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Geographical Systems, and we look forward to working with him in the next years.
