While I was at the University of Arizona, we produced the Journal of Insect
Science (http://insectscience.org) (now at the University of Wisconsin).
While this is a peer reviewed journal, it took the approach not to produce
actual "issues", but to publish articles once they successfully vetted
through the peer review process. For preservation and posterity, at the end
of each year we would print out all of the articles and have them hard
