The unacceptable delays in the production of Atlantic Seabirds have largely been due to a structural shortage of time by the editors in chief of this new journal. We are glad to announce that Steve Geelhoed (Dutch Seabird Group, Haarlem) was prepared to join the editorial board, mainly as a managing editor, responsible for lay out (of future volumes) and production. We hope that we are now able to produce this journal more regularly.
