How do I become a reviewer?

Does JoLLE ever publish special themed issues?

JoLLE publishes two issues a year: an open submission issue in the fall and a themed issue in the spring based on the Winter Conference. We only have the capacity for these two issues, and special themed issues are posted at the discretion of the editor. As a UGA student organization, JoLLE does not outsource issues to external editors. We also do not publish additional issues of any kind beyond those published in each semester during the academic year.
