This is also Radical Psychology's final issue.  After publishing open access online articles by critical psychologists, and other authors with related interests, for over 10 years now, the journal served a purpose that its readers and authors felt was needed.  However, with the rise in open access online journals and the substantial gains of critical psychologists in forging a place and voice within mainstream psychology, this journal has come to a natural end.  Regardless, all issues of the journal, since its inception will continue to be available online.  The editors and editorial board would like to thank its readers, authors, guest editors and reviewers for making this journal a success for so many years.
