The new editor-in-chief for Nordic Studies in Education, from issue no 1. 2015 and onwards will be Professor Herner Sæverot, University of Bergen, Norway, the Board decided during its meeting in Lillehammer 6 march, 2014. The Board wants to welcome Herner and also thank the current editor-in-chief Fritjof Sahlström, who together with his editorial assistant Tuuli From made a tremendous good and time-consuming job in reorganising the journal in relation to its changing circumstances. As was reported during General Assembly the turnover for manuscripts is now around 4 months. That is an excellent achievement! The Board is convinced that Herner Sæverot will continue to work for keeping the journal in a good shape. For more information about the journal please see the documents from General Assambly 2014. For a further Norwegian presentation of Sæveret see below.
