Our editorial board has decided that the time is right to organize a special issue on MEXT 21st Century Programs to disseminate these invaluable research findings as widely as possible. Our three guest editors – Prof. Yasuyoshi Yokokohji of Kyoto University, Prof. Masamitsu Kurisu of Tokyo Denki University, and Prof. Hiroyasu Iwata of Waseda University – have all worked in the specialized areas featured here. Of the 30 papers submitted for this special issue, some 18 papers have been accepted for publication after a careful review, and some are still under review.
We thank the authors for their valuable contributions and the reviewers for their generous time and efforts in making this issue a success.
