Special New Issue: Provenance

When I was still Provenance Editor, I started the process of a special audiovisual issue. From the start, then Associate Editor and now Editor Heather Oswald took the reigns. I’m excited to see it is now available!

What makes this issue different is that some of the content is audiovisual “articles.” The goal was to not have a print/text only issue, but experiment with AV as content. I hope to see more of this not just in Provenance but other journals as well!
