JNC continues to grow and establish itself as a central venue for reporting and discussing contemporary ideas and knowledge in the field of mathematics and numerical cognition. JNC is superbly supported by its progressive publisher, PsychOpen, who continue to innovate and grow their publishing systems and standards whilst they maintain a Platinum publishing model – free to read and free to publish – that matches many commercial outlets. This Editorial marks the start of Volume 5 of the Journal, and there are already many important and interesting articles lined up for release this year.

The Journal continues to invite and consider a broad portfolio of articles for publication. “Traditional” analysis of empirical research can be complemented by pre-registered reports, where a submission is made and, following careful review, an in-principle publication decision is made prior to the collection of data. As you may notice from browsing through the Journal contents, there is an increased availability of supplementary materials for empirical research, especially raw data, and a movement towards an increasingly systematic cataloguing of what supplementary content it is possible to make available. Theoretical contributions continue to be welcomed and book reviews have been commissioned. The Journal has benefited from a number of special issues too, where a focused set of papers crystalize contemporary issues and developments.

JNC reviewed and renewed its Editorial Board team members beginning in 2019. The Journal is rightly proud to have assembled an exceptional group of researchers in the field, who bring a mix of experience and new ideas, current Journal experience and also fresh talent, and a skill set that reflects the broad community of research that seeks to improve our understanding of mathematical behaviour and numerical cognition. We have full confidence that they can help to identify and nurture the very best research ideas and research findings for publication in the Journal.

The Journal would also like to take this opportunity to thank sincerely the previous Editorial Team, who supported the Journal from its inception and launch and who have helped to make the Journal the rapid success that it has become. We wish all those who are stepping down every success in new endeavours.

As noted in the previous Editorial, the success of the Journal would simply not be possible without the many volunteers who have undertaken reviews of submissions. Thoughtful, incisive and constructive reviews represent an essential component of the health and vitality of the Journal. It is through such reviews that authors come to see important perspectives and recognise the core challenges in communicating their work.
