LTJ runs themed issues to create collections of papers on specific topics. Frequently, special issues consist of invited manuscripts written specifically to focus on current issues relevant to the LCANZ which the editor would like to showcase. The LTJ editors occasionally collate theme pages to showcase scholarly articles on a specific topic published in LTJ across different volumes.
