The Institute of Noise Control Engineering for the United States (INCE-USA) is excited to announce that James K. Thompson, PhD, PE is the new Editor of the Noise Control Engineering Journal (NCEJ). Dr. Thompson assumed the editorship on July 1, 2017, following the retirement of Courtney Burroughs, PhD.
NCEJ is the world renowned refereed journal devoted to noise control engineering and subscribed to by noise control professionals and technical institutions around the globe. As the only such journal dedicated to noise control engineering, NCEJ plays a unique role and is an important publication in this technical specialty.
Dr. Burroughs has provided outstanding services as the NCEJ Editor. His leadership has resulted in the growth of subscriptions and the improvement in the quality and quantity of technical papers in the Journal. He has shepherded the Journal through the transition from a paper to an electronic publication, while maintaining its high technical and editorial standards. The entire noise control community owes a great debt of gratitude to Dr. Burroughs.
Dr. Thompson brings 40+ years of noise control experience to NCEJ. Most recently, he was the Managing Editor of Noise/News International. He is a Past President of INCE-USA. He will continue the growth and innovation of NCEJ begun by Dr. Burroughs. Shortly, the Journal will migrate to an online process for paper submission and review that will assist both the authors and reviewers working with NCEJ.
As Dr. Thompson noted, "I feel I have a great role model in Dr. Burroughs. He made major improvements while establishing NCEJ as a world renowned journal. I hope to continue the progress he has made and provide even greater contributions to the noise control community."
