Yes I know, I am fully aware that I have been neglecting my own blog and my fantastic audience as I have not put anything on here for a year now. And you also know, there can always be some sort of explanation, lots of things that I had to go through and that I had to deal with. Good news fellas, I am not going to bother you with the details, so let us pick up the thread where we dropped it a year ago! Hopefully, I will open a new chapter in my life today and catch up with all the work that I have abandoned for a while...
Today is a special day then: first of all, it is my return to the path I want to walk, and it is a celebration because I achieved a milestone on the 18th June 2013 and we must remember that day!
Geographical Locality Studies is our (Frugeo's) open-access journal - free to join, free to download, free to share. Today, we celebrate the fifth anniversary of publishing GLS 1: Locality and the Energy Resources which marks an important milestone in the history of this scientific initiative.
Every GLS issue is dedicated to someone who has left their influence on the subject area that the current number investigates. in 2013, Locality and the Energy Resources celebrated Dr Klára Bank's 60th birthday and praised her commitments to highlighting the role and importance of geography of energy resources within Earth Sciences. Exactly five years ago, therefore, we enjoyed a birthday, a book publishing, and a workshop on energy resources which took place at the University of Pécs in Hungary. Today, we remember the 18th June as we began something exciting then and there, and it is fantastic to see how much we have achieved so far over these years. (It was also one of the most classic days in my life as it was the middle of Summer, about 50 degrees in the classroom, and I was wearing a dark green, long-sleeved shirt. As you can see, it was not a winning choice, but hey-ho, life goes on...)
Well done to everyone who has ever, in any way, contributed in GLS and thank you for lots of people's continuous support over these years. I am very pleased to write these lines today to honour all your help, work, and achievements. Thank you!
~ Laszlo, Editor-in-Chief
