A year of marking milestones and identifying challenges

It seems 2012 is a year for significant anniversaries and I have been fortunate enough to be involved in several of them. In my view, the most important of these was, of course, INASP’s 20th Anniversary — but then I might be biased. Some of the other milestones included: the 30th anniversary of the European Association for Science Editors (EASE) during its conference in Tallinn; the 125th Sri Lanka Medical Association (SLMA) Annual Conference was held in Colombo; the Budapest Open Archive (BOAI) has been in operation for 10 years; and the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) celebrated its 40th Anniversary at its recent Annual Conference.
