Volume 4 (2010)

Dear Colleagues:
If you have checked the LD&C home page recently, you will have noticed that our journal now employs a “publish-upon-acceptance” system. This means that we no longer publish on a regular schedule, but instead upload articles and reviews as they become ready for publication, after the review and editing processes.

We adopted this system in the hope that it will better enable us to serve both authors and readers. Please be assured that we will continue to maintain both the quantity and quality of materials that we have published during the past three years.

The current installment of articles and reviews for 2010 follows. If you are a subscriber to our journal, we will inform you when new materials are available. If you are not a subscriber, then we urge you to become one. It takes only seconds, and it helps us maintain our funding.

We hope you will check our website on a regular basis and that you will continue to support and profit from our journal.
