OSO Turns 10!
Oxford Scholarship Online turned ten years old on November 2013. To mark this anniversary, we celebrated for a year with lots of exciting projects, including an infographic, an online brochure with free chapters (which will be available until the end of 2015), and a year-long series on the OUPblog about the changing face of digital academia.

Undeniably, our reading and research habits have changed drastically since the advent of digital publishing. How has online academia changed since OSO's launch 10 years ago? What might the future hold for it?
