Douglas Anderson is no longer involved with Tolkien Studies.

The end has been reached. I have ceased all involvement with Tolkien Studies. Things could have been otherwise, but under the new climate of Mordor-styled publishing, I don’t fit in. Like the scientists in the articles referenced above, I must question the value of putting a pay-wall between a scholarly journal and its audience. It certainly doesn’t help scholarship by diminishing access to a journal solely in order to fill the coffers of its publisher and distributor. The old model is broken, and there needs to be a new one. A fair one.

Yeh, the book review section was very useful. Perhaps Aelfwine could give us an update of what TS is going to look like going forward, without Doug...
