It's time to hand over the baton

After almost 10 years since the idea of creating a magazine on emerging socio-legal studies began, and despite the difficulties that an altruistic and voluntary but rigorous project could face, Sortuz is a ongoing project! 10 numbers published, with several of them in guest editing system, numerous authors, with their anonymous reviewers, 10 artistic and photographic covers in every issue, an excellent web-site (thanks Antonio Ariza), and permanently adapting to authors and readers needs. In few works: a hard but good work!

And this good work will continue thanks to the very new general editors Lucero Ibarra and Alexander Kondakov! To them we hand tem over the baton, being fully confident that they will not only keep the machinery of the magazine ready, but provide innovative apps. The challenge is to find a space in the difficult world of scientific journals with impacts, indexes and major publishers. The new social networking and open-access can be great allies in this new journey. Sortuz has its own potential and an invaluable human capital: students and young researchers participating in the International Institute of Sociology of Law of Oñati. They are those who, from a constant and necessary critical perspective, open the magazine to new socio-legal horizons.

Good luck and full steam ahead!
