I have mixed feelings about this change. The journal is on my list of "must reads" and so I will soon have twice as much to keep up with. Plus, I referee articles for the journal, so I anticipate the number of requests to double as well.
The bigger concern is that the quality of the articles will remain as high as it currently is. They certainly are not turning away 24 issues worth of articles merely for space limitations. A more gradual rate of increase would at least create the perception that the quality will remain high. We'll just have to see what happens.
