Currently researching the emergence of Scottish history as an academic discipline and the associational and publishing cultures that supported it, Dr Macdonald sees her involvement in the journal in terms of ensuring the dissemination of high quality research to the general public, and learning from the work of others.

'History Scotland’, she notes, ‘is all about doing history differently, and about putting the audience first. It really has added a new and very important dimension to the publication of Scottish history. I always enjoy seeing it arrive in my pigeon hole at work. Woe betide anyone who disturbs me when I remove it from the wrapper!’
