In the 1990s, editorship of the journal changed hands several times and heralded by a further
change in the cover design, it moved to a new publisher – namely, Carfax, a small, specialist
journal publisher. The number of issues increased to seven in 1992, eight in 1993, and nine issues in 1997. And to address concerns from members that policy was being underrepresented, from 1993 a section in each volume of the journal was dedicated to ‘Debates and Reviews’. Like the ‘Policy Review’ section introduced in 1982, it allowed shorter
papers to appear in a refereed journal. Further, its content was linked to the Newsletter which, in February 1993, was renamed Regions.
