This extended editorial reflection is adapted from remarks prepared for a panel discussion at the annual meeting of the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA), hosted at Pennsylvania State University, August 18, 2007. In recognition of the silver anniversary of Landscape Journal (LJ), CELA members were asked to comment on its first quarter- century and to speculate on the next. Panel objectives were to identify and improve strategies for ensuring the continued vitality and relevance of Landscape Journal, including re-examining the LJ mission, identifying relevant content, ensuring quality of scholarship, serving new readers, and improving delivery systems, among other things. What emerged from the discussion was a valuable formative historical narrative, as well as a shared sense of commitment to the Journal as a disciplinary resource. Remarks have been modifi ed slightly from the original and an additional response has been added.
