Editorial January 2017


Happy New Year to all our readers, authors and reviewers. We had an interesting year in 2016 with PESTLHE as we got ‘attacked’ by one of those nasty computer viruses and then someone stole our domain name (see pestlhe.org.uk) and it is now a creative arts and craft site. Good grief. I should let you know that whilst HE is undergoing many changes – knitting was not one of them.


So welcome to our first issue of 2017 and we should thank all the authors of our papers for their patience as we navigated the journal around attacks and knitting. This year we have two special issue coming out – one on Threshold Concepts and one from the ELSTIS16 Conference. We will have two standard issues in April 2017 and November 2017.
