Continuous Article Publication Model


Starting in January 2022, LLT will transition from a tri-annual to continuous article publication (CAP) model. The implementation of the CAP model will make it possible for general interest content to be published throughout the year, as soon as it becomes ready for publication. As of January 1, 2022, general interest LLT articles, columns, and reviews will be published on a rolling basis. Therefore, beginning with Volume 26, all general interest articles, columns, and reviews published will be part of a single issue, designated as Issue 1. 

Since 2017, the NFLRC has assigned unique electronic article identifiers (handles) to all published content and retroactively supplied handles to all LLT content. Unique article identifiers render sequential issue or volume pagination obsolete. Therefore, starting with Volume 26, content appearing under Issue 1 will no longer be paginated sequentially by issue. Every general interest article, column, or review will start with page number 1. The organizational grouping of articles, columns and reviews will be maintained under the CAP model. When new content is available, readers who wish to be notified will receive a message from LLT as has been customary when new issues have been published.

Special issues will continue to be processed and released in the customary way; the current schedule for special issues will not change, and all the articles that make up a special issue will be released simultaneously on the day of its publication. Special issues will be numbered consecutively after the first, general interest issue (e.g., when two special issues are published in a year, they will be numbered as Issue 2 and Issue 3, respectively). Content appearing under special issues will be paginated sequentially.
