This is the editorial for the twelfth issue of Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal, published spring 2019. This issue contains a number of articles including: examinations of autism spectrum disorders, Indonesian education policy, image processing for viral recognition, international students' interpersonal communication, and postgraduate event organisation. The issue also includes a full author and article index to the first six volumes of the journal. The editorial itself takes a reflective look back over the past year of development of the journal and the scholarly communication environment, drawing on some of the social media posts by the Editor-in-chief. It concludes with a call for papers on the theme of 'in-between spaces', and highlights some exciting special issue developments coming over the next 18 months.
