A Laurel and a Few Steps Forward

I’m very pleased to announce that in January Print Plus received the Council of Editors of Learned Journals’ inaugural Best Digital Feature award. The citation praised the platform as “a model to which print scholarly journals with a digital component might aspire,” specifically referencing the variety of forums and our “breathtaking array of content.” This is the second major award for the platform since Debra Rae Cohen launched it in 2016. A lot of editorial blood, sweat, and, well, maybe a tear or two, have gone into it, but of course the reason readers keep coming back is the content.
