Linux Journal (LJ) was a periodical covering Linux and other free software, as well as occasional non-free software. It ran from 1994 to 2019.

A discussion thread at LWN notes that LJ had an unusual "artistic immortality policy", permitting re-publication/re-use of LJ content subject to certain provisions.[1][2]

2017 shutdown and revival

LJ announced on 1 December 2017 that it is ceasing publication.[3]

As of late December 2017, LJ's entire publication archive is available to download, for subscribers, or can be purchased by non-subscribers.[4] As of 31 December 2017, a copy of the archive costs $25.[5]

On 1 January 2018, LJ announced that it was brought back to life by London Trust Media, the parent company of Private Internet Access.[6]

2019 shutdown

On 7 August 2019, LJ announced that it had "shut its doors for good" with all staff laid off and no operating funds remaining.[7]

2020 revival

On 22 September 2020, LJ announced that it was operating again under the ownership of Slashdot Media.[8]
