Starting in 2022, IBEJ uses a continuous publication system. This means once the article has finished all of the editing and layout processes, it will be published immediately without waiting for other articles to complete the full issue. Furthermore, the full issue will be built gradually along with the other article being added. IBEJ will still publish two issues per year (May and November) and after every six months, the article will be placed in the next open issue.
