These are personal reflections of a regular reader and contributor…The noteworthy activities include the exchange of scholarly views, and the dissemination of knowledge, with the purpose of advancing the accumulation of knowledge of all aspects of the Baltic Sea region…I am also reminded of the debates that preceded the journal.
