Ten years is the age of JM3 as well as the tenure of this founding editor-in-chief. It is short in terms of the vivid memory of the early days but is long as far as volumes and issues are concerned. I accepted the challenge in April 2001. The inaugural issue appeared in April 2002. Since then, there have been 10 volumes and 39 issues containing, as of this writing, an estimated total of 722 articles spanning about 5800 pages. Approximately 2647 authors will have published their articles in JM3 by the end of 2011. The editorial board started with three senior editors. Currently, there are four senior editors in the disciplines of micro/nanolithography, MEMS, MOEMS, and microfabrication. There have been 66 associate editors, 28 of whom stepped down from the editorial board, as well as three senior editors, whom stepped down after their terms expired. Nearly 1000 reviewers provided their valuable opinions. We are extremely indebted to them. We appreciate the tremendous support given by SPIE, the publications committee, and the helpful staff members. Among them, Eric Pepper, Harry Levinson, and Karolyn Labes have given special attention to JM3.
