|Editor||Dr. Richard Lofthouse|
According to its website, the magazine is distributed free to around 150,000 alumni around the world and also by subscription. It appears three times a year, with the issues coinciding with the three Oxford academic terms of Michaelmas, Hilary, and Trinity. The editor is Dr Richard Lofthouse, and it is published by Future plc on behalf of the University of Oxford.
Articles cover subjects such as current affairs, history, literature, as well as the University itself. Contributors and interviewees have included many Oxford alumni from different walks of life, such as the politician Michael Heseltine, the author and playwright Alan Bennett and the comedian Terry Jones of Monty Python fame.
The magazine was previously published by Wiley-Blackwell. In April 2010, it was reported that a new publisher would be taking over the magazine, resulting in the job of then-current editor Greg Neale being placed under review; this caused concern among members of the publication's editorial review board, some of whom expressed the view that the Oxford administration was seeking to reduce the magazine's independence. The magazine is now published by FuturePlus, a division of Future Publishing Limited, on behalf of the University of Oxford.
