A word from the Editor-in-chief:

I was very honored to have the opportunity to lead BAR for the next three years. I greatly acknowledge the relevance of BAR in the role of disseminating knowledge in the area of Business and Public Administration, as well as recognize the excellent work of the editors who preceded me. I hope I can, like them, contribute to BAR continuing its evolution.

For this, together with the editorial team, we have some initial objectives in mind. We want to create a permanent team of Associate Editors, distributed by areas of knowledge; we will speed up the evaluation process, without losing quality; and we are going to expand the journal's internationalization process.

We are in the process of planning and implementing some changes, but I am sure we will do a good job. I have already realized, in this short period of work, that I have an extremely efficient and committed team, which makes things easier and more fun.
