This article marks the handover in Editor for Environmental Impact Assessment Review. It responds to the changes and ongoing challenges set out by the previous Editor-in-Chief for the last 18 years, Eric Johnson, setting out the approaches to open access and increased demand for rapid turnover of articles. The diversity of subject areas that are published in the journal will continue to be welcomed, with clarification of the journal scope to ensure all branches of impact assessment are explicitly accommodated. The challenges of peer review are considered, though not resolved!
