This past fall, over two hundred readers and subscribers to the
Anglican Theological Review filled out a readers’ survey—the first such survey undertaken by the
ATR in several decades. We are grateful to Forward Movement for their generous help conducting the survey.
One of the more surprising—and satisfying—results of the survey is that we discovered that the majority of respondents hoped we would continue to publish in print format, even as we expand to other kinds of platforms. What was surprising was how strongly our readers felt about maintaining a print version, especially in this digital age. What was satisfying was the sense we were doing the right thing—continuing to publish a high-quality, peer-reviewed print journal at a time when many journals of this kind have converted to digital-only access.
Sustaining a print journal like the
ATR in a digital world is a labor of love, and would be impossible without the generous support of our donors, whether in support of the Annual Fund, or by underwriting our occasional thematic issues, or by helping us to expand the free subscriptions we are able to offer to almost two hundred seminaries and theological schools overseas.
