Publication model

UPLanD operates under a continuous publication model. Once an article is in its final form, after editing, double-blind peer review process and proofreading, it is immediately published online, with references to be cited and definitive page numbers, into one of the two annual issues. This means that current issues are built up gradually throughout the year. The first issue of every year closes on October. The second issue closes on April of the following year.
