Editor’s Note: The April 2000 Edition of JAPA is dedicated to the publication of eight original research articles from Japan. The associate editor for the Japan Special Edition of JAPA is Dr. Kiyoji Tanaka of the University of Tsukuba. The idea for a Japan Special Edition was initially fonnulated several years ago, and Dr. Tanaka and his colleagues have dedicated a considerable amount of time and energy over the past 2 years toward its publication. Initially, they solicited manuscriptsfrom Japanese researchers involved in different aspects of the study of successful aging. Submitted articles underwent two levels ofpeer review. The first stage of the review process occurred in Japan. This stage involved selecting independent expert reviewers who evaluated the manuscripts using the standard JAPA blind-review format. The manuscripts that were selected as a result of the initial review were then forwarded to the editorial offices of JAPA and underwent an additional stage of peer review.
