Extract

At least once a year, the Editorial Leadership Team of the Journal meets to discuss the status of the Journal and to evaluate how well we have carried out the action items from our last strategic planning meeting that constitute our plans for the given year. In this report, we summarize the presentations, discussions, and deliberations that took place during the Associate Editors’ Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii, at CHEST 2011.

We are pleased to report that by all accounts the Journal enjoyed many successes in 2011. The path set forth during our August 2010 strategic planning meeting required that we target new efforts along four key themes. These themes are (1) raising the quality of the science and the clinical relevance of the articles published in CHEST, (2) increasing awareness of the Journal and driving traffic to our Web site, (3) improving reader experience, and (4) maintaining a strong financial base. Data that we have compiled reflect improvements across all areas.
