SLD Experience Update

We have decided to cease production of the SLD experience journal. The next and final issue of 2018 will be the last that we produce. We have taken this difficult decision due to rising production costs which have made continued running of the journal unsustainable.

We are grateful for all of your support for the journal over the last 26 years, and we sincerely hope that you have, and will continue to cite and learn from the articles we have been able to publish.

We are exploring ways to keep historic issues available on our website and will keep SLD subscribers updated on our progress in this area.

We will also continue to provide new research articles through our remaining two journals available through subscription; GAP and IJPBS. We also offer both JARID and BJLD for free for all members of BILD in order to spread this knowledge to as many people as we can.

Thank you again for all of your support and an extra special thank you to our outgoing editor Jean Ware, without whom, publishing SLD would not have been possible over the last few years.
