The art of being a good guest: reflections on guest-editing a theme issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B

Guest editing a Theme Issue was an enjoyable and rewarding process. The full journey from pitching the topic to the Editorial Board, through to the issue being in print took about 15 months. It all began with too many ideas and concepts on the role of phenotypic plasticity in response to environmental change to fit in one issue, but with some refinement the pitch was accepted.

During the process, we were fortunate to have a plethora of amazing researchers who were willing to contribute to the issue, and it was made possible by authors balancing this within their already hectic schedules. We were also extremely fortunate to have a budding Australian artist, Damien Veal, willing to give his talent to creating a cover image for the issue – blending science and art. We love the creation of pawns navigating the game of environmental change.

In short, if you’ve thought of an interesting topic for a Theme Issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B – Go for it!
