NOTE ON CANCELLATION OF JULY 2020 EDITION:
It is with regret that we have to announce that AQ will not be publishing edition 91.3 July-September 2020. This is due to the pandemic and the long-lead times required for the publication of a journal such as AQ. We had to make the decision whether to publish back in April (which seems an eternity ago) but it was still when the potential disruption to our production and distribution was unknown. We apologise to all our readers for the disruption, but all subscribers will have their subscriptions extended and the next edition you can expect to see will be a bumper October edition! Thanks for your understanding and ongoing support.  - The Editor
