The key feature of Living
Reviews in general and LREG in particular
is the concept of a living article. This means that LREG
will take advantage of the ease of editing electronic material to keep
Because LREG offers immediate online
access to all its articles and to any online materials cited in those
articles, it recognizes that it is essential that all articles and all
links stay current.
LREG will stay current in the following ways:
- First, and most importantly, authors will substantially revise articles
as important new research developments occur. These article updates are either
treated as new publications, subjected to refereeing, and published with a new
publication number ("Major Updates"), or, in case of short addenda of current
research results and trends ("Minor Revisions"), are added directly to the original article.
Second, all electronic links made in articles and in the journal at
large to online resources will be actively maintained. They will be
automatically checked frequently and updated as needed.
