The First Publishing Event in the New Year! Full Unlimited Online Coverage! Was that the real beginning of the new 21st Century? Global challenges changing lives on a scale never seen before – a global pandemic, ferocious evidence of climate change and biodiversity loss, and cyber warfare influencing global leadership against a backdrop where evidence and experts are increasingly discounted in place of tribes with their own truths. Research is increasingly having to step up to meet global challenges and we need robust responses to reclaim trust in both scholarly publishing and the expertise of researchers as we map the path to the future. Covid-19 stress-tested scholarly communication and there’s room for improvement but also inspiration for change. A changing world has led to new solutions and new players – but are they robust and tested for long-term trust? Pre-prints proved a rapid way to communicate potentially crucial findings in a crisis but is the world ready to understand the implications of reading un-tested research? Peer review, the bastion of trusted science, is under scrutiny from those within and outside research and with calls for transparency and openness in science, where next for dissemination of research findings? 2021 is the start of a very new and very different period in history and we come together with purpose and a collaborative spirit.
