Duncan was for me, indispensable and essential when we worked together for the European Journal of Developmental Psychology. He was always present when I sent an email about the many papers I handled as an associate editor. Intelligently, without unnecessary mailing, he understood the challenges I faced as both a journal editor and a busy professor. In short, for 7 years, he was there for me and the journal. He smoothly suggested solutions as to how I might handle the many manuscripts and reviews that regularly popped up in my inbox. He had full control of the huge flow of revisions, resubmissions, reviewers and gave me very helpful flow charts of the status of the many manuscripts in various phases of the publishing processes. Furthermore, he was there when the journal got more technical and I did not understand the new templates and was under time pressures. Thus, I give my very best recommendations for working together with Duncan. I have worked with many through the years, but not as nice, efficient, present, helpful and professional as Duncan.
