Sixtieth anniversary issue in honor of Professor Rodney Hill


The Journal of Mechanics and Physics of Solids was started in 1952 by Rodney Hill who passed away in 2011. To mark the sixtieth anniversary of the Journal and to pay tribute to the vision of our founder, we dedicate this issue to his memory. Over the last six decades, the Journal has played a pivotal role in the Mechanics of Solids. The topics of interest have evolved with time, but the basic ethos of publishing research of the highest quality relating to the subject has remained unchanged. To emphasize this, we decided that the Hill Memorial Volume should look to the future. We invited a representative group of eminent but early career researchers to submit their best work to the volume. We are delighted with the manuscripts we have received, and we strongly believe that these articles represent the vitality of the community served by this Journal. The volume also contains an article by the Michael Ortiz related to the Hill Lecture he delivered at the ICTAM in Adelaide as well as the Hill Lecture delivered by Huajian Gao at the ICTAM in Beijing. This issue also marks a major change in our Board of Editorial Advisors. We have added eight eminent scholars who bring diverse backgrounds to our Board of Editorial Advisors. We have also created a Board of Senior Editorial Advisors, and are fortunate that five distinguished researchers who have been pivotal in guiding the Journal in the past decades have agreed to serve on it.
