    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;In 2013, the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council funded a 4-year project on&lt;br&gt;
the editorial and commercial history of the world’s oldest-surviving scholarly journal&lt;br&gt;
(‘Publishing the Philosophical Transactions: a social, cultural and economic history of&lt;br&gt;
a learned journal, 1665-2015’, AH/K001841). The project is led by Dr Aileen Fyfe at the&lt;br&gt;
University of St Andrews in partnership with the Royal Society.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The project team convened a workshop at the Royal Society, 22 April 2016, on ‘The Politics&lt;br&gt;
of Academic Publishing, 1950-2016’. This briefing paper is informed by the contributions&lt;br&gt;
of those who attended that day, and we thank them for their insights. The authors of this&lt;br&gt;
briefing paper are a sub-group of those who attended the April 2016 workshop.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;This report is based upon the primary (historical) research of the Philosophical&lt;br&gt;
Transactions project team, combined with a literature review, and the expertise of the other&lt;br&gt;
authors (principally in higher education research, and in scholarly communication).&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We are grateful for the comments of our critical friends: Rick Anderson, Sue Clegg,&lt;br&gt;
Steven Hill, Nick Hillman, John MacColl, Sally Mapstone, Cameron Neylon, and Stuart Taylor.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
