The evolution of an article through updates and revisions is documented in the article's history. Living Reviews in Landscape Research provides access to an article's history record in two ways: by clicking the history link in the journal's table of contents or via the link in the article's top menu. The history lists publication dates of the various article revisions and short summaries of the changes and additions made.
Revisions and minor updates (which can either be errata or short additions of new developments) that do not justify a full-scale article update are reviewed by our subject editors and directly inserted into the text of the original article. Beyond a summary of the change in the article history, popup windows at the actual position in the article where the change has been made provide further details, including the original version of the text. To view these information, click on the highlighted "Update" link in the text. Ruby buttons  on the "Update details" page and in the text allow one to find and track the changes made, by jumping from one to the next within the article.
