A year has passed since the new leadership of this journal was officially introduced in an editorial for the Special Issue commemorating our 100th volume of publication. That editorial and several of the contributed essays to the Special Issue offered ideas for strengthening the journal and clarifying its mission for moving forward. These ideas have since been discussed with members of the Editorial Advisory Board, our Publisher Deirdre Dunne, and other members of the wider journal community, and were fleshed out for implementation at an editor's retreat in Shanghai this past October. While the most visible change might be our new cover design, many other changes made thus far have been infrastructural ones to improve the journal's administrative and editorial operations. In this editorial we describe the progress of the third Editorship of Landscape and Urban Planning during its first 16 months of operation (September 2010-December 2011), and outline changes planned for implementation during 2012 that will be the subject of separate editorials in the coming months.
