Background: Launched in April 2008 by the Santa-Barbara-based Miller-McCune Center for Research, Media and Public Policy, Miller-McCune was originally positioned as a high-end research publication that proposed practical solutions to social, economic and political issues. Editor Maria Streshinsky, previously managing editor of The Atlantic, came on board in 2011 and decided to refocus the publication, starting with the name change to Pacific Standard. "In some ways, we're going back to the core of what the magazine was started for: a conduit to academia, research and primary source investigation," she explained in July 2013.
