Outgoing Editors' Reflections

In the six years since assuming the role as co-editors of this journal, we have witnessed a substantial growth in the reputation and impact of the journal. During our tenure as co-editors in chief, Animal Behavior and Cognition became the first journal specializing in research on nonhuman animals to publish pre-registered reports. Furthermore, we initiated a novel Opposing Viewpoints format; the first set of articles in this format were published in the previous issue. We have felt privileged to help shepherd this once fledgling journal to its current status and leave it confidently in the hands of the new editor.
