The Basel Journal has been mothballed – whether temporarily or permanently has yet to be decided.

by Martin Pütter

The Basel Journal has come to the (temporary?) end of its line. (picture by pixabay)

It was a great journey, writing for The Basel Journal, editing and translating texts by other authors – but the journey has now come to a (temporary?) end.

I have been lucky to get back into full-time employment as of January 2019, so I would like to say thanks:

  • to the people who founded TBJ in 2011 and allowed me to continue as editor of the online edition once the print version had come to an end. Please note that the founders still own all rights to the name, i.e. domain name, trademark, et.al. However, there are exceptions: anyone who would like to quote from articles of the online edition needs to get approval from the respective authors as these authors own the copyright to their articles (an agreement between the TBJ founders and the contributors from day one of TBJ’s existence). Photos without any mention of person or persons owning the copyright were downloaded free from the internet (e.g. pixabay).
  • to all the authors, photographers, translators and proofreaders who contributed to the online edition during those last few years. It was a pleasure to work with them, and I wish them all the best for the future.
  • and finally to all the readers of The Basel Journal, it has been an immense pleasure writing for you.

“Mothballed” means TBJ has come to rest – however, whether that is temporary or permanent is up to the founders to decide.

Finally, as the dolphins say in the fourth book of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” trilogy by Douglas Adams: “So long, and thanks for all the fish.”
