Abstract

This is an introductory editorial for the fifteenth volume of Exchanges. In this piece, the journal’s Editor-in-Chief explores some of the difficulties faced by authors, reviewers and editors alike working on academic publishing in a time of Covid-19 crisis. It briefly considers some of the hard decisions needed, but also examines how the lockdown period has permitted a re-visitation and embrace of the journal’s overarching ethos by the Editorial Board. The article reveals some of the drivers which have led to the launch of the journal’s new podcast series, alongside providing insights into some of the future planned episode. Crucially, the editorial provides an overview of each piece of work appearing in this journal issue as a guide for readers. The article closes by highlighting Exchanges open call for publication submissions, along with announcing a new themed call on the theme of ‘Challenge and Opportunity’.
