Congratulations Professor Reay

Congratulations to Professor Reay who is standing down as editor-in-chief of the Elsevier journal "Applied Thermal Engineering" after more than 30 years in the role. Prof Reay originally launched the journal in 1981 ago as "Heat Recovery Systems & CHP" by Pergamon Press and has overseen growth from around 40 papers published per year to receiving more than 20 new submissions per day! He will stand down as editor-in-chief at the end of 2014. His farewell editorial can be viewed here.

From early 2015 he has agreed to be editor-in-chief of a new Elsevier journal entitled "Thermal Science and Engineering Progress". Submissions from PIG members will be most welcome.
