'But He Looked Suspiciously Well Fed'
Editorial, Volume 7, Part 2
Keywords:Editorial, Cannibalism, Special Issue, valorisation, editorial labour
This is an introductory editorial for the fourteen volume which comprises the very first special issue ever published of Exchanges. In the piece, Editor-in-Chief Gareth J Johnson explores the drivers and process that led to it being produced, while acknowledging the unanticipated labour demands and benefits which have arisen. He also considers how this, and future, special volumes represent a valorisation of Exchanges through a recognised increasing demand for its publication support and a demonstrable value within the global early career researcher community. After playing tribute to the post-graduate researchers who supported the volume's development, the article goes on to briefly highlight each of the articles appearing in the special issue; each one of which stems from a 2018 conference on cannibalism. The editorial concludes with providing information on current calls for publications and plans for future issues, along with contact information for the journal.
