  1. Is there a full online / digital version of the quarterly publication (YALSA YALS) ? I've been a member/subscriber since 2007 and I'd like to be able to get rid of my paper stacks and switch over to purely digital content. I see the Online Companion e-newsletter, and various of the articles but I'm not seeing a full version of the printed magazine itself…
    thanks much!

    • Hi Jack — no there is not a full online or digital version. We will post PDFs of each issue after an embargo for three months and a sneak peek at articles shortly before each issue mails. Let me know if you have any other questions!
