Crises for Publishing Societies are Not New A History of Scientific Journals

Join Sam Burrell, our Program Chair, as she talks to Aileen about her new book, which explores the history of the Royal Society’s Philosophical Transactions from its very earliest days. (It’s an OA and you can find it HERE!) What has this got to do with today’s Learned Societies? It might surprise you. Finding out about how we got to where we are today offers surprising insights into the business models of mission-led publishing societies, and shows us how we got to where we are today. (And besides, it’s really interesting.)
