PRIMUS has two formats that allow readers to find and connect paper related by themes.
One way these collections have been formed is through the long-standing tradition of Special Issues, in which guest editors invite, help develop, and editorialize a set of papers that are published together consecutively in the journal. For the first time, readers can search for these special issues.
However, not all of the big themes in the journal are represented by special issues, and some themes have continued to develop since the publication of a special issue, so we are introducing a new structure called Curated Collections, in which guest editors search through the PRIMUS archives and write a novel synthesis and editorial about this collection of papers. These editorials will appear as a published articles in the journal (with their own DOI), as well as in the form of a blog post on this website. The blog posts will be archived as sub-pages in the menu above.
We welcome nominations for future curated collection and special issues themes.
