Unlike new journals, many of which are electronic only or open access, EASTS reads in the old-fashioned way. While committed to selecting and publishing the very best papers in the field, we pay equal attention to thematic issues, honoring a collective scholarship that individual papers by themselves are too short to achieve. We believe that this is why EASTS was the winner of this year’s 4S Infrastructure Award, when it was recognized that “academic publishing activities had been tuning with compromised efforts to maintain STS communities in connection and in communication with demands and trends of civil society” (more in News and Events in this issue). Interestingly, even when we’re working on issues comprised only of individual papers, we usually find that there’s a relatedness to be perceived among them, as if they were written around a common theme.
