Six years ago, I published a review (survey) paper about a topic in my field.
Since then the literature (and the topic) has evolved substantially, so I think it’d be worthwhile to update the review by writing an “update paper”. I can think of at least hundred papers published in the meantime that could be worth adding, and a few interesting points (new perspectives, etc.). However, I have never seen a paper revisiting a previously published review paper and updating it. My questions are:
- Does such situation warrant a new publication?
- Is it common to publish a review paper updating a previous review? Any examples?
- How to title it?
