“It is a great honor to be appointed the new editor-in-chief of JSM. The enormity of the task in following Irwin Goldstein is clear, but I am up to the challenge. I want JSM 2.0 to continue to be relevant, rigorous and readable. I want to grow the journal’s stature and embrace new digital technology to give the reader a truly interactive experience. My aim is to improve our impact factor, as well as educate and train the next generation of sexual medicine clinicians and researchers and ensure that we have highly-skilled young people who will take over the future generations of JSM.”
