Inauguration Day is upon us. As the presidency of the United States of America moves from one human to another, we reflect upon leadership and the role of charisma. Author and co-editor of The Journal of Interdsiciplinary History Robert I. Rotberg writes that "charisma is best understood as the inspirational component of the bond between leaders and their political and organizational followers that allows them to act as if they are genuinely inspired to maximize what they presume, or are led to believe, are their own interests." Check out this week's selection from our archives, free to read through 1/27.

"Consortium publishing, Jones said, pools both financial and intellectual resources, not only easing financial stresses but expanding the journal’s perspective....

This endeavor will more than triple African Arts' number of editors, drawing editorial input from not only fellow US universities — at the University of Florida and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill — but also from an African institution: Rhodes University. The South African school will join the editorial consortium in 2017, led by Professor Ruth Simbao, who is also involved in a program in Africa aimed to improve standards in regional academic publishing."

We spoke with Dr. Jeremy Trevelyan Burman, PhD for the October SPOTLIGHT ON SCIENCE Q&A. Dr. Burman was recently named to a tenure-track position supporting the new Reflecting on Psychology graduate program at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Here, he reflects on his article in Perspectives on Science: “The misunderstanding of memes: Biography of an unscientific object, 1976-1999.” This has been the journal’s top download almost continually since it was first published in 2012.
