Conference organiser Tim Holmes (Magazine Director at Cardiff) commented:
“I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who contributed to Mapping the Magazine 3.
“I was also very impressed by the tremendous collegiality and generosity of spirit showed by all to all.
“There are a number of initiatives that have been suggested, including a new journal dedicated to the field and an international organisation of practically-oriented magazine courses.
"I am very happy for Mapping the Magazine to be a facilitating agent or platform in anything like this; I also hope that there will be some interpersonal collaborations that arise as a result."
Mapping the Magazine 4, is currently planned to take place in July 2013.
