Numbers 11 to 12 and volumes 13 and 14 were edited by Duncan J. Brooks. Volumes 18-25 were edited by Guy Kirwan, and volume 26 jointly by Kirwan and Michael Blair. Mike Blair was then the editor until spring 2008. The current editor since volume 30 is Dr P. J. Cowan of the University of Nizwa in Oman.
