What our guest editors say about publishing an issue in Philosophical Transactions B
"It has been an outstanding, enjoyable and learning experience. The time and effort it takes to put together a theme issue is greatly exceeded by the reward of networking with the contributing authors and learning more about my own field."
Professor Marcelo Rubinstein, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina
"It has been a privilege to guest edit Philosophical Transactions, and a pleasure to work with their fantastic editorial team."
Dr Dora Biro, Royal Society University Research Fellow, Associate Professor of Animal Behaviour, University of Oxford, UK
"A special issue of Philosophical Transactions B provides an unparalleled opportunity to draw together, in a world renowned journal, the ideas, reflections and observations that are shaping research in your field. By giving authors the freedom to say what they think is most important, rather than newsworthy, this kind of issue can make a lasting contribution to science."
Dr Tom Hartley, University of York, UK
"My experience of publishing a theme issue has been very rewarding. The editorial office have been extremely helpful and comprehensive with any issues arising during the different stages of the publication process. I am certainly satisfied with how the final issue looks, and I hope to have the chance to repeat it again in the future!"
Professor Fernando Maestre, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Madrid, Spain
"Editing a Philosophical Transactions B issue was well worth the effort - the staff members were helpful, professional and efficient and our issue has had real impact on the field."
Professor Tecumseh Fitch, Department of Cognitive Biology, University of Vienna, Austria
"The efficiency and support of the editorial office staff make the whole process not only painless, but enjoyable, and the end product was fantastic."
Dr Louise Barrett, Department of Psychology, University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
