Living Reviews are scientific open access journals, publishing review articles that provide insightful surveys on research progress in the fields they cover, and guiding readers to the most important literature in the field.

Its unique concept allows authors to regularly update their articles to incorporate the latest developments in the field. Living Reviews are available online only, enhanced by web features like movies, downloadable source code, or cross-linking to other resources.

Living Reviews is a pioneer open-access journal project, which started operations in 1998. The Max Planck Society is no longer able to operate Living Reviews, but will continue to host the web site until Living Reviews has been transferred to Springer where publication will resume shortly.
