Abby J. Kinchy, Shobita Parthasarathy, Jason Delborne

Abstract


In this editorial essay, Abby Kinchy, Shobita Parthasarathy, and Jason Delborne look back at the editorial and publishing practices of the first five years of the journal Engaging Science, Technology, and Society (ESTS), the open access journal of The Society for Social Studies of Science (4S). As three members of the inaugural ESTS Editorial Board, Kinchy, Parthasarathy, and Delborne reflect on what they value in academic practice, including publishing, and consider some of the highlights and accomplishments of ESTS’s first five years (2015-2020).
