The Journal of Failure Analysis and Prevention has a very talented Editorial Board that includes failure analysts from industrial, university and government laboratories. Each of these individuals contributes to the success of the Journal especially by contributing outstanding features, editorials, case histories and articles to the Journal. Many of the Board members have reviewed and revised submitted manuscripts and used their talents to improve other author’s publications. This issue of the Journal provides a tribute to the Editorial Board by publishing manuscripts authored by many of the Board members. These articles not only display the talents of the Board members, they provide excellent contributions to the failure analysis literature.
As Editor, I hope that this special issue of the Journal challenges each of us to try to match the Board members’ willingness to share their talents with the failure analysis community. After all, sharing our ideas and talents is the best way to improve our contributions to the failure analysis community.
Editor, Journal of Failure Analysis and Prevention
