In a digital world where most readers first find research at the article level, you might think that the journal cover isn’t as important as it used to be, but what’s on the cover can say a lot about the identity and values of the community that the journal serves. In this episode, we talk to the publishing team for the Journal of Midwifery and Women’s Health about why they changed the journal’s cover after 40 years with the same image and how readers, authors, and reviewers reacted.
