In this chapter we look back at the classics’ journey and share some insights from the previous chapters. We highlight some interesting trends from the chapters and share some of the benefits we believe the readers have gotten from reading the chapters about the classics. We make some comments about the contributing authors, their academic status and where they come from. We also discuss some of the limitations of our collection and share some insights for future projects. Finally, we acknowledge the contribution of people who made this work possible.
