Conference wrap-up
Thank you to everyone who helped make our November 15th conference a smashing success!. We are most grateful to our 21 speakers and 15 volunteers from around the country, and to our 130 audience members (representing dozens of institutions) for their participation. The initial proceedings from this event are now posted online, including slide shows, notes, audio files, posters, and some transcripts. A final summary report will be added to these materials soon. This conference was an important event for helping bring together a diverse audience around the multifaceted issue of journal reform. There are many viewpoints to consider and many interesting reform movements are already underway. The workshop at the close of this conference outlined a few of the possible ways we can move forward together. If you're interested in participating in this effort, please email journals@nationalscience.org.

Not just blue and red
The extreme polarization of policy debates in our country today is often portrayed as a contest between Democratic and Republican viewpoints. Portland journalist Colin Woodward reminds us that there are actually a kaleidoscope of regional perspectives to consider at the national level (not even considering local variations).
