Living Reviews in Relativity is a peer-reviewed open-access scientific journal publishing reviews on relativity in the areas of physics and astrophysics. It is published by the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics. The concept of Living Reviews is to use web-based electronic publishing to allow authors to update their articles with the latest developments and research findings.
The articles in Living Reviews provide critical reviews of the current state of research in the fields they cover. Articles also offer annotated insights into the key literature and describe other available resources. Living Reviews is unique in maintaining a suite of high-quality reviews, which are kept up-to-date by the authors. This is the meaning of the word "living" in the journal's title.
It is central to the concept of Living Reviews in Relativity that it be a fully electronic journal, this allows to update its articles regularly and with minimum effort. The journal's reference database provides indexes of useful resources. Thus, in addition to a review journal, Living Reviews can be used by its readers as a database, an encyclopedia, or a resource letter. Living Reviews in Relativity has become a valuable tool for the scientific community and one of the first places a researcher looks for information about current work in relativity.
