n Shakespeare in Southern Africa - Editorial

Volume 32 Number 1
  • ISSN : 1011-582X



In 2019, Shakespeare in Southern Africa decided to adopt the ‘online early’ or ‘online first’ publication model (also referred to as Advance Online Publication, or AOP). Volume 32 of the journal thus grew in installments over the course of the year, with each piece published electronically through our digital publishing partners as and when it was ready rather than being delayed until the full volume was ready for printing. This increasingly common model for scholarly journals has obvious advantages, both for authors and for reader-researchers; it facilitates the dissemination of knowledge, the core of the academic project. It also reflects the means by which that knowledge is typically accessed nowadays: whether via search-and-download or via an emailed PDF, articles, essays and reviews are most often read as individual or standalone works. With this in mind, the idea of a curated, coherent volume almost seems like a rather quaint relic of scholarly times gone by.
