First paragraph: Welcome to the first issue of Information Polity for 2019. This issue marks an important landmark, in that it is a year since we as Editors-in-Chief took charge of the journal. Over the past year the journal has gone from strength to strength, and the journal can quite rightly claim to be one of the leading international publications for critical eGovernment and eDemocracy studies. During this period, we have overseen the introduction of Associate Editors, a revised submission process, a glossy new website (https://informationpolity.com) and a Twitter feed (@InformationPol2). These changes are already starting to ‘bear fruit’, as evidenced by the sharp increase submissions, citations and also rejections. Of course, none of this has been possible without the support of the publisher, IOS Press, and we would like to state in print our gratitude to all those at IOS Press that help us realise each issue of the journal. This is no small undertaking and one which can sometimes be overlooked by the academics involved. We also have to place on record our thanks to all those academics who assist with the peer review process. Peer review is critical in ensuring the relevance and quality of the articles submitted to the journal, and is a process to which we give the upmost importance. Last, but not least, we have to thank all the past and future authors who submit their work to the journal and who provide its dynamism and relevance.
