Journal For Quality And Participation

An Announcement for Subscribers

Deb Hopen

It is with great sadness that we share with you news of the passing of Deborah Hopen, editor of the Journal of Quality and Participation (JQP). She died on April 5 after battling lingering health problems. She was 67.

A prolific author, the first female chair of ASQ, and editor of JQP since its inception in the late 1970s, many subscribers certainly know Debbie personally. Look for more details about her life and accomplishments in an upcoming issue of Quality Progress.

Due to this development, ASQ will not publish the April edition of JQP. We are quickly working to reevaluate the future of the journal in light of Debbie’s passing, as it truly was her labor of love.

Editor in Chief and Publisher, ASQ
