    up-to-date on OR up-to-date about?

    Comment
    ..., which is recommended to those readers who want to keep themselves up-to-date on/about(?) XXXX.

    XXXX is in this case the name of a scientific programme.
    Thanks for any help!

    On. "I'm up to date on the latest programme developments", for example.

    In the interest of all who use this thread for future reference: it is neither "on" nor "about" but "with" that is needed here.

    LONGMAN DCE example: Our magazine will keep you up-to-date with fashion.

    No alternative is offered, therefore with is the preposition you ought to stick with...

    all the best, Chrysopteron

    on, about OR with are ALL ok!! It's a matter of context and personal preference.
