As a primer to this month’s event, detailed here is a recent blog post, we thought it would be a good idea to share an interview with Aileen Fyfe originally posted on the PLOS BLOGS Network in April 2016. In the interview Aileen Fyfe offers an in depth explanation of her research into the history of academic publishing, peer-review, and editorial processes, by examining how these phenomena first emerged over 350 years ago in the world’s oldest journal – Philosophical Transactions.
