Abstract

The Call for Papers for the Journal of Peer Production‘s TRANSITION issue invited research studies of societal transitions related to peer production, in the context of the ongoing environmental and health crises. It also positioned research itself as part of transition processes, particularly in regards to the conventional structures of academic publishing. And finally we evoked the role and possible transition of the Journal of Peer Production itself. Our CFP, disseminated in the first year of the pandemic, thus queried: ‘What should be done to develop the digital and physical commons? What role should the Journal of Peer Production play in this development? And what shape should it take?’ Eighteen months later, a collective decision has been made that this TRANSITION issue will be the Journal of Peer Production‘s last, with activities continuing in different forms through new projects. This fifteenth issue therefore assumes the responsibility of closing this phase in the history of the analysis of peer production.
