In 2018 we celebrated the 30th Anniversary of  Learned Publishing and marked the occasion by looking back over three decades to reflect on how scholarly publishing has evolved. 

In her editorial for the April 2018 issue, Pippa Smart, Editor in Chief looks back ... and forward to the future

'2018 marks the 30th birthday of Learned Publishing and has made us consider what role the journal has played, continues to play, and should play in the evolving world of scholarly publishing. Our world has changed (almost) out of all recognition in the past three decades. This is largely due to developments in technology, which have shaped and influenced the changing expectations of what should be the norm for scholarly research publishing....We look forward to the next 30 years.'

Take a look at our video clip of Pippa Smart and Lettie Conrad, North America Editor, as they reflect on the key changes to scholarly communications.
