Professor Maciej Henneberg, Wood Jones Chair of Anthropological and Comparative Anatomy and Head of the Department of Anatomical Sciences at the University of Adelaide, has been appointed Editor-in-Chief of HOMO - the Journal of Comparative Human Biology.

Published by Elsevier, the journal is a major international publisher of scientific literature and has been published without interruption since 1949. Professor Henneberg succeeds Professor Friedrich Roesing from Ulm, Germany. Professor Henneberg's supporting editors are Professor Stan Ulijaszek from Oxford and Dr Frank Ruehli from Zurich.

"I am honoured by this appointment and especially being able to house the chief editorial offices of an international, impact-rated journal at our University," Professor Henneberg says.

"HOMO is an international scientific journal in the field of biological anthropology focusing on the history of human population, human growth and development.

"Through special consideration of general topics as well as those aspects of human biology, which touch on the humanities, demography and health sciences, the journal HOMO attempts to foster an interdisciplinary view of the human being. A comprehensive book review section also serves these purposes."

The journal targets anthropologists, human biologists, human geneticists, ethnologists, palaeontologists, pre-historians, archaeologists, sociologists and psychologists.
